Error creating folder

I've googled the heck out of my issue with no results. I've also enabled logging, but the error doesn't make sense.

I'm using Powershell in Win10 to automate SFTP uploads. My script uploads into 5 or 6 destination folders based on which source files exist. The problem is that some uploads fail with "error creating folder" even though I am only uploading a single file into an existing folder.

Here's my code:
Write-Host "About to upload $($file.FullName) into $($ToFolder)"
$transferResult = $session.PutFiles($($file.FullName), $ToFolder, $False, $transferOptions)
The Powershell console shows this:
About to upload Z:\Folder1\Staging\Folder2\19-04288_Attachment_MIA-6456144_Folder2 ST.pdf into /Parent/Folder2/In/
Upload of Z:\Folder1\Staging\Folder2\19-04288_Attachment_MIA-6456144_Folder2 ST.pdf failed: Error creating folder '/Parent/Folder2/In/19-04288_Attachment_MIA-6456144_Folder2 ST.pdf/'.
Permission denied.
Error code: 3

The session log shows this:

So, why am I getting "Error creating folder" when I'm uploading individual files into folders that already exist?

Re: Error creating folder

Thanks for your report.
I have sent you an email with a debug version of WinSCP to the address you have used to register on this forum.
