WinSCP prevents access to files

Dear all,
I would like to ask about a behaviour I encounter with WinSCP 5.7.7.
Let's say I create a folder with WinSCP from a distant XP PC (let's name it PC1).
Next, I shut down this first PC1 and I use the Explorer (not WinSCP) in another XP PC (let's name it PC2) to delete/rename this folder. Then I receive the message that it is used by another application, although PC1 is shutted down. In order to do that I have to use again WinSCP from this last PC2.
Is there an explanation for this ?
Thank you all, in advance.

Re: WinSCP prevents access to files

It looks like your SFTP/FTP server on Windows XP "server" is buggy and keeps the folder locked even after the client (WinSCP) disconnects.

Did you actually disconnect WinSCP before shutting down the machine?
