Volume in drive C is unlabeled Serial number is 5468:a34c
TCC: (Sys) The system cannot find the file specified.

0 bytes in 0 files and 0 dirs

If I create new directory at the command line, it appears in the List View pane, but not the Folders view.
[C:\temp\temp]
>mkdir test2

[C:\temp\temp]
>*cdd test2\

The List View still displays 'test2', as though the cwd were \temp\temp.

[C:\temp\temp\test2]
>*cdd /t .

Folders view and List View still behave as though \temp\temp is the cwd.
What's going on?

[UPDATE]
Similarly, if I delete an immediate subdirectory via command line, the List view is updated, but the Folders view is not. If I click on the now non-existent folder in the Folders view, there is an error about the folder referring to a location that is unavailable...

Two issues here:

First, the folder and list view windows do not automatically track the
tab window's CWD. You can configure TCMD to do so in TCC tab windows,
though it wouldn't be desirable in most cases as you'd be unable to
change to another directory & drag and drop to the TCC window. (You
cannot do it for non-TCC windows.)

Second, the Folders view does not automatically update on a directory
creation (because of problems with the overhead). You can force a
refresh with the File/Refresh menu entry. An autoupdate is on the
suggestion list for the next version.
