Forced to quit WinSCP to safely remove external drives
Every time I have used my external SSD with WinSCP I have to quit WinSCP because it has locked the drive. Even if I have closed the tab it seems to keep the lock on the drive. The drive is not open in some of the other tabs I have open.
If I run the program "What's locking this folder?", I can see that it is WinSCP that has locked the drive.
There must be a way to prevent this? If none of the sessions have the drive open it shouldn't keep the drive locked.
For the most time I have WinSCP running all the time.
What I did was:
I inserted my external drive and opened a new connection and copied some files to the external drive. I then closed the connection by closing the tab and I then tried to safely remove the drive, but it was in used by WinSCP. It wasn't any large files I was coping and it is a fast SSD running over USB-C.
Ok, so I did some tests. It seems that I do not even have to drag/transfer any files. Merely opening the drive in the local panel locks the drive forever. Even if I then open another drive. Can you confirm that?
