Recently created files missing from Explorer

I don't think I'm imagining this...

When I have just created a new file, or downloaded it, or moved it from one folder to another, or renamed it, I have the impression that it doesn't show in Windows Explorer. It looks as if it's just not there. You can't find it by browsing, nor by searching. But if you try to create the file again (with the same name) you get an error saying you can't do that, because there is already a file here with the same name. I suppose the file shows up in Explorer some minutes or hours or days later. I have not researched exactly how long it takes. But this is extremely annoying.

Have you seen the same thing?

Is there a solution?

Does Microsoft know this problem exists? Can we expect a solution within the foreseeable future?

Thanks - Rowan

If you do a dir in a command prompt does the file show up there?

Yes, I have seen the same thing. I run Windows 8.1 on a SSD, and I did a recheck of all my SSD setup, and changed a few things. I have not seen it since. Don't know if that fixed it, or it just went away...
