Sharing violation on NT
Posted on 2001-06-26
I have an MS Access file on Windows NT 4.0 server that cannot be open, deleted or renamed. Anyway, when I copy this file to other directory it can be open, rename, etc. as usual. when I deleted it, no matter in Explorer or in Command line box, it said there's a "sharing violation".
I have taken the ownership of this file, taken ownership of every file in that directory, then, I removed a share on that directory. It didn't work. So,
1. How can I solve this problem? Does rebooting help?
2. How to prevent or identify which files now having this problem (my network has a lot of files that not so frequently used but when it is, it's urgent.)
Thank you in advance
