Renaming a shared folder, very odd behavior

stevijb77
Explorer | Level 3

So it turns out that if you rename a shared folder, it doesnt rename it for other users.  Totally un-intuitive and unexpected behaviour, but the documentation says its to 'avoid any confusion'.  Another oddball way of working that you'd never know unless you stumbled across it.

 

Crazy as it is, why does it not at least tell you to unshare, renamed, share again!?

So I unshared and re-shared, and in the 'files' area of the shared user it still has the old name, but the new name elsewhere...  Removed the folder with the old name, re-shared it again and its still displayed as the old name.  Obviously a bug on top of the original odd way of working.
