I guess you use FileObject.copyFrom(), do you?
Then yes, this connection is needed as VFS checks if the destination 
exists and is writeable.

You have to call "fileOUT.close()" which will reset the cache, you still 
can use fileOUT for subsequent operations.

But maybe take a look at org.apache.commons.vfs.impl.DefaultFileMonitor.
Using a fileListener you will get informed as soon as something has 
changed is the directory you monitor.
