View filter not updating

I have a new view I created roughly 2 months ago. I forgot to create the filter to break it down to a specific subdirectory originally, but I created it over 2 weeks ago and I'm still seeing whole site data. The filter logic is set to include only traffic to subdirectory /moon-lectureship/ but I still get whole site data, a difference of 10,000+ hits. This has been driving me crazy! Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm beating my head against the wall trying to figure this out....

Hi @Angelo State U :-)

When looking at the reports, are you making sure to change the date range at the upper right to only include data from the day after you applied the filter up to and including the current day's date (filters don't work retroactively, only going forward from the date they are applied)

Thanks for replying!

Now I can see the filter is working up to yesterday, when I deleted and recreated it out of frustration. Ha!
