    i've been converting video files and when they begin the
    conversion the new file appears saying it's something like
    8kb. when it's done it doesn't refresh to show the actual
    converted size, which is much larger. the view menu has
    no option to refresh or update the finder view. how do i
    do this in osx?

    thanks,
    BabaG

    Jump up to the parent folder and back again, or use a script like Refresh Finder. AFAIK there's nothing built in to Finder to let you refresh the folder manually :(

    In Finder, you might try View > Show View Options > Calculate Sizes (check) > Use as defaults

    thanks for both of these. i installed the finder-refresh thingy.
    will use that if the preference setting doesn't keep the finder
    automatically updated.

    thanks again,
    BabaG
