I made some new folders, and then dragged files to them, to organize them in Thunar. I then opened the folders, and the files are not there!

I opened the folder properties, and it says there are items, and shows me their combined size, but I can not see the files!!!!

Show hidden files is on, and the files were not hidden to begin with. The drive they are on is NTFS.

Ubuntu Studio 15.04, am a Linux newbe.

  • Try hitting F5 to refresh the folder view. – TheWanderer Aug 24 '15 at 15:38
  • Refreshing, and reloading did not change it, but just now I closed Thunar altogether, and opened it up again, viola' the files are now showing. This is obviously a bug, where should I report it? – zoidmaster Aug 24 '15 at 15:40
  • Sometimes it just doesn't update the folder view. I thought F5 would help, but I've never used Thunar. Glad that you got it resolved though. – TheWanderer Aug 24 '15 at 15:41

After closing Thunar, and then reopening it the files now show as they are supposed to. Now it would be great if someone could figure out why this is happening, and post a permanent fix, and it's developers fix the offending software, as it is really scary when files go missing!!!!!!!!
