cannot delete : it is being used by another person or program
Posted on 2004-04-29
i am running windows XP
i am trying to delete and move a couple of folders and files.
i get this error message.
Cannot delete [Folder Name]: it is being used by another person or program
close any programs that might be using the file and try again.
The point is no other program is using the files / folders. i have restarted the comp so many times , shutdoen the antivirus but nothing seems to be working. i need to free up hard disk space.
has nayone faced the same problems before ?
