Bug report #14371
QGIS Locks All Files Within a Folder
|Affected QGIS version:||2.8.5||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Windows 10||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||fixed/implemented|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||No||Copied to github as #:||22354|
QGIS appears to lock all the files within a folder even though it is accessing only a subset of the files.
I created a new text file within a folder where QGIS is accessing a raster. Once the text file is created, I can no longer edit it. This is true of other GIS files that QGIS is not accessing.
Version is 2.8.6 but I cannot select that below

I tried with a .txt file and a GeoTIFF file and didn't hit that issue with QGIS 2.16.3 on Win7. Could you try to create a new directory and check what is the minimum content to reproduce the issue ? (and provide the data and steps you applied)
