SYMPTOMS

You map a drive on a Microsoft Windows XP-based computer to a Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) server. After you modify the files in the compressed folders (.zip folders) on this drive, Windows Explorer may not show the changes in the compressed folders. Windows Explorer takes approximately one minute to display the correction. If you do not close Windows Explorer, you cannot see the changes in the compressed folders.

CAUSE

The problem occurs because of a stale cache entry. When you rename a file name, the client does not invalidate the local URL cache entry that corresponds to the original file name. Therefore, if the target name already exists in the cache, the file is not updated.
