Project files/directories not updating when externally modified

PhpStorm 2.0.1 is failing to autoupdate the project files after external file/directory modifications.  Anyone know why this may be happening?

I noticed this too.  I think a refresh button needs to be added also that way we can manually update the listings when it doesn't do it on it's own.

Thank you Kirill,

I do not see the "deployment" option in the settings but I did find   Settings - General   Synchronize files on frame activation.   I checked that and it now works wonderfully.

I did not know about this option before, thank you for pointing us in the right direction. Hopefully others in future find this useful.
