Cannot Delete or Move certain files


A

Andrew Mullen

When trying to delete or move certain files in our file
system, (even files we just created) we often get an error
that states:

Cannot Move/Delete File or Folder

Cannot move/delete (filename). There has been a sharing
violation. The source or destination file may be in use.


We used to have a NT 4.0 Server and we would use
FileManager to close all open instances of the file and
then we could delete/move it, however, we are now using a
Win2K Server and FileManager no longer exists. We are
stuck! This occurs on files on our local machines as well
sometimes.

Can someone help?

Thanks

Hi, could you try to copy or delete your file with a dos command (type cmd from Run item in the start menu)

we've tried that, and we get a similar message in the dos
window. it reads :
"The process cannot access the file because it is being
used by another process."
even though there is no process using that file...

still stuck!!!

Helps to make sure nothing is using it.
