So I tried creating some folder structure in the photo folder in lumia using windows explorer. Moved around some images.

Now these photos show up just fine in photo apps but in wrong places (most of them) and even though I can view them properly on the photos app, most other apps just crash etc when I select one of those moved photos.

Even the photos app background doesn't show up if one of those moved photo is the background currently.


Why doesn't the phone refreshes the photo "cache" that it is using with the one that is actually on the storage? How can I force it to do so?
Very annoyed that a simple image moving/folder creation is causing so much problems.


I have also found that if I create a folder under documents and keep some documents in there, they do not show up in office...wtf.

Not something I've messed with but taking a guess I'd say it just doesn't take folders into account. Maybe if you restart the phone it'll rescan the folders and take the changes into account?

I did restart a couple of times.

it supports (!) folders in pictures and music.
there is a stock folder named "8" that has some stock images.

when I first moved some pictures to two new folders, one worked, one didn't. Then I moved both back, now both do not work.

Sorry man, I have no idea.

Normally I weigh in with answers on these things D:

Can you tell me the names of the apps you can't get it working with? I might be able to hunt it down in my free time..

Any apps that select an image for some reason.

Is it a language issue? I haven't connected my phone to a PC since I originally synced some music to it so I never messed with folders and stuff.

Using pure English.

btw, the Pictures folder DOES support folders but I believe it has bugs.

I added an image to my phone using W8 app. It created a new folder called "Pictures" (inside Pictures) and put the image in there. Works just fine.

So it just seems like for some reason, WP8 is not updating its "file location cache" when I moved around things thru windows explorer. This sucks.
