I noticed annoyance. When you edit some file and close it, program does not know that you closed the file.

If you try to open/edit that file on the server again, it will display error:

This can only happen, if you have explicitly enabled External editor opens each file in separate window (process) editor option (or you are using an old version of WinSCP, or you have set up your extenal editor using an old version of WinSCP):
Try to disable the option.
