Ok, the title of this post was dumbed down for efficiency's sake...
I am truly at a loss here...
Many times, for example...when a modify a help file and rename it(in the very same folder), I can´t find it when I use windows explorer via pure data...however, using windows explorer outside of pd, yes.
Vice versa, I have saved many versions of a project in a folder, now windows explorer does not see them, however, when I access explorer via pd, there the files are.
This is a problem that I only notice with pd, I have never seen anything like it before..
I must be missing something..
Any help or guidance would truly be appreciated.
