#12744 new Bug report

Local file change monitoring only detects after file close on Windows 11

Description

Hello,

On Windows 11 the local file change monitoring doesn't work. When I open the file and save it, the change popup in FileZilla doesn't appear. When I close the editing program and re-open it again, the popup apprears once the file editing software has re-opened.

I tested this with both Notepad++ and the built-in Windows Notepad.

I also tested this with Windows 10 and there I don't have the issue, I do however have this issue on all of my Windows 11 devices (3 different devices).

This issue is already there for at least a few months, I don't know exactly when it started but probably since Windows 11.

Regards,
Bas

Sounds as if Windows 11 doesn't propagate file metadata changes.

If you save the file in your editor, does the modification time in Explorer immediately update?

I thought the same, but yes, the modification time in Explorer changes immediately.

If you don't close the editor, are the changes being picked up if you switch to FileZilla and minimize and unminimize it?

Yes, that seems to work.
