Delay removing files if in use

Sonarr version (exact version):
Mono version (if Sonarr is not running on Windows):
OS: Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS (5.15.0-48-generic)
Debug logs: N/A (cycled since last occurrence)
Description of issue:
I have my quality profile set to grab 720p and 1080p episodes with cutoff at 1080p. Occasionally it will happen that an upgraded version for an episode finishes downloading and is imported while I am watching the lower version on Plex. Sonarr will then delete the file for the episode that I am watching, which will stop playback until I either restore the file that was in use or get Plex to recognize the new file. Is there a way to delay deleting the older file until it is not in use?

No, Sonarr has no knowledge that the file is in use/being watched.
