IDEA cannot refresh to reflect directory changes in "attach classes to library" dialog

I used to put all my third-party libraries in a folder: d:\lib. If I created a new directory under it, and put some new library in that directory, I found that IDEA cannot recognize the changes to the directory immediately. Even the "refresh" button in the dialog don't work. I have to open and close the dialog several times, waited about 1-2 mins before the changes were detected.

My system configuration is : IDEA 10.0.3, windows 7.

I frequently see that, too.
If you file a YouTrack-Issue, I'll add my vote: http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/dashboard/IDEA#tab=0

I'm seeing the same problem. In my case, the directory I want to browse to was added two weeks ago - and still doesn't show up in Settings | Resources | Add file browser!

Where are the paths cached? Can I manually update the path list to include a known path?

Thx.

Hello jack,

File | Invalidate Caches should serve as a workaround.

Thanks Dmitry. I was hoping not to have to invalidate all the caches, but I'll give that a shot.

You know, I really love IDEA and just started exploring YouTrack. Thank all of you for making these excellent tools - and continually making them better!
