File size will not automatically refresh in a finder window

i'm not sure how long this has been going on, but i've noticed that when i save a file onto an external drive, the size listed will not update automatically and says "zero k". if i change the window view to thumbnails, or to columns, then back to file list, the size is then listed correctly.
does anyone have a fix for this so it will update automatically?
my permissions have all been verified ...

Dear Bob,
I am having the same problem but your solution does not swork for me. I have 6 VPCs on my "host" PC and 5 of them are working normally but one has gone into shut down mode but will not shut down. Due to memory restirctions, I can only run 2 VPCs at a time
so this one is cutting that to one. I found I can hibernate it by using CTRL-ALT-DEL on the host and doing "End task" on the dodgy VPC, but it still says "Running" in the Virtual Machines folder and it will not let me delete the .vsv file for the dodgy VPC.
If I then rty to open it again, the window opens but with "Shutting down" showing and none of the VM menus work: shut down and restart both say "Cannot shut down this virtual machine"; tools / integration features runs but says it cannot start integration;
Ctrl+Alt+Del does nothing at all. Ideally, I would like to restart the VM to get a few settings from it and then shut it down and delete it (it is a failed development) but right now I would settle for anything that gets rid of it altogether! Any suggestions?
Why doesn't MS provide a way of forcefully shutting down a VM?
