The SD card by its design can give priority only to one device at a time as I understand it. A pc that is accessing your SD via the android phone which is acting like a card reader when the phone is hooked up to the pc, in such a case the card cannot be equally available to both devices at the same time.

Example: I had a offline maps app installed on my device and used the sd card to store my country's full map which was about 250mb. When I hooked the phone to pc via usb cable setting the android phone to storage mode data transfer, the offline map refused to access the map again even after reboot.

My work around was using a wifi dongle on my pc and I used xiaomi mi drop application to transfer files from pc to phone and vice versa.
This way I could keep sd priority on the phone.
