Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Saving properties reports: "File is already in use"

Hi folks,

when I make a change in the comment field and click "OK" (or "Apply") to save the changes, I often get the message "One file could not be updated: File is already in use". This happens especially with bigger mp3 files (80 MB and more). I have to click OK many (say: many many) times until it finally works.

I am using foobar2000 1.6.2 on Windows 10 2004 (64 bit, SSD). This also happened with earlier versions.

Is this a known issue?
