    Refresh Bin Container more requently?

    Hi, 

    I have the following scenario. I am working with Media Composer on a simple Network Attached Storage that is mounted to my mac via SMB. Part of my workflow consists of an assistant creating new folders within my project on Finder-level while I work on that same project in MC. The problem is that new folders created by my assistant will not show in the Media Composer bin container until I select "Refresh Bin Container" from the right-click context menu of the Bin Container. The folder is, however, immediately visible to my Finder and the Finder of my colleague so this does not appear to be a storage/SMB issue.

    Is there a way to have Media Composer auto-refresh the bin container on a more frequent basis?

    Thanks :)

    Which file allocation table is the server formatted in? I'm curious if this is an issue with NTFS formatted drives on the windows side.

    Also.. I would like to note here that this also happens when the project is on the local HDD. Creating a folder in a project on Finder-level will not show that folder in MC until the bin container has been refreshed manually. There has to be a way to auto-refresh th ebin container, right?
