Syn does not close folder handles when it is not using
them. For example, if one opens a file and then closes
the file, the folder handle for that file will remain
open. (Note: I'm using the term folder handle to refer
to what is probably internally called a file
handle...but it's pointing to the folder, not the file...)
The way I discovered this was by attempting to delete a
folder after accessing it with Syn. I used a process
explorer to close the handle, then had syn view the
folder by clicking file>open and canceling (without
opening the folder). The process explorer indicated
that the folder had been reopened and that it was
opened by Syn.
