it happens on local drives (haven't checked network ones yet)
happens to both NTFS junctions and normal folders (and files)
no filtering is applied
As for the antivirus, Kaspersky was removed and reinstalled recently. But I had Kaspersky prior and it didn't cause such problems
It doesn't affect Windows Explorer, the changes are refreshed there instantly when they are made in Windows Explorer. However, the changes made in Windows Explorer are reflected in Directory Opus in the same weird form as if the changes were made in DO (folder changes only shown after a manual refresh, file duplicates with new and old names, vanishing after manual refresh).
If the changes are made in Directory Opus, it behaves is even weirder, even the folders are duplicated in Windows Explorer, albeit temporarily (they disappear after a refresh).
Edit: also, Kaspersky is not activated yet, its protection components are reported as not running.
Kaspersky is probably the cause of the problem. It sounds identical to this:
There's a simple test app I wrote lower down that thread which can be used to confirm the issue isn't restricted to Opus, and to show to the admins or Kaspersky, to help them believe there's a real problem
I agree. That POS of a software is causing me problems again and again. It also screws Sandboxie. But company says it is to be used, and so it is used. Even if it occasionally costs me hours (or days) to make that damned thing stop interfering with my work.
One of your posts mentioned some stack overflow post where the OP said Kaspersky can be configured to be less a*****e-ish, but I cannot figure out how they've done it. Can you lend some help there, please?
