I faced this issue when i used IE11 browser, Because it caches the current View of directories and hence when we create the new directories in File View (even though the directory is actually created in the HDFS) the File View still shows old view.

Please disable the Browser Cache in IE11 and then try again or use any other browser like Chrome / Firefox.

Hi @John Bowler

I just found the tutorial, started my Sandbox and attempted to create the 'data' dir in the tutorial under /user/maria_dev/

It worked for me without an issue. Can you try refreshing your browser to see if that helps? I've had my browser play UI tricks to me in the past.
