If you go to lxss folder, for example your home, and create a file via Windows File Explorer, it will be shown in File Explorer, but not in bash.
I have also experienced files disappearing from bash when edited in windows.

I'm on 14361. This is a possible regression.

@itaysk pretty sure this expected behavior currently. See the explanation at https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/wsl/2016/06/15/wsl-file-system-support/

Consider the following scenario:
In bash, I created a Ruby on Rails project.
I then want to edit the files using VS code.
Current behavior will break the project. Files will be present in Windows world, but missing from bash.

This was even a demonstrated use case in some of the early videos that was released.

For this scenario you will have to use a folder outside the lxrss tree.
Just put the project in your Windows home directory and put a symlink to it
into your linux home if you want.This has some other drawbacks, but should
work for the use case you describe and was also suggested in the blogpost.
