_close() for file handle issue in windows

Hi all,

  Im opening a binary file and reading block by block of data from it using _open() and _read() and closing the file with _close(). For reading each record im opening and closing the file.Iam reading the file in binary read mode.

After i process all the records i need to move the file to a different folder. Which im unable to do. The error is sharing voilation. I made sure that all the file handles are closed. Even then im not able to move the file instead im able to copy the file. But my requirement is i need to move this file.

This problem is not occuring for each and every file. this is only occuring at times. Is this anything to do with Os not releasing the file handle.

I also tried it by putting a sleep of 1second between the binary file reading and moving the file. Did any body face this issue and can anyone tell me a solution.

Thanks in advance

Vidya

I have found the solution for myself the file i was trying to copy was being opened and accessed for 50 times before i copy it. So OS in this sittuation is taking 500 milliseconds to release the file handle.

Thus the problem is fixed.

Thank you
