Topic "Windows thinks WinSCP uploads are locked"

WinSCP 4.1.9
Windows XP Home SP3 (Client) / Windows Server 2003 SP2 (Server)
# Automatically answer all prompts negatively not to stall

cd /cygdrive/c/inetpub/ftproot/[user's directory]
# Upload files

# Disconnect
# Exit WinSCP
Laserfiche Import Agent generates this Windows Event Viewer Error Message (on server) when it tries to move the file: 'The file "C:\inetpub\ftproot\[user's directory]\[filename.tif]" is locked.'
Even though Event Viewer says that the files are locked, the files can still be opened, moved, edited, etc. We encounter this error message with approximately 10-40% of WinSCP uploads. We also use RoboFTP for some transfers, and those come through without error - this issue has been isolated to WinSCP uploads.

Thanks in advance for any input!
