File.Copy : The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (Using ASP.NET and VB.NET)

Using ASP.NET and VB.NET

When I attempt:

       File.Copy(strSource, strFileName, True)
-or-
       File.Delete(strSource)

I get this error:  The process cannot access the file "\\SERVER\www-folder$\Menu\Xml\myMenu.xml" because it is being used by another process.

I am running ASP.NET on IIS 5 with .NET Framework 1.1

I am really stuck...  Any help would be nice.

Make sure that any code that edits / opens the resource in question explicitely CLOSE it when you are finished working with the file before moving or deleting it with the code specified.

Looks like a web server folder - is the indexing service running and indexing that folder? That would do it.

You may also have a rights issue.

Yeah, it does sound like a rights issue, which is common with ASP.NET, since a lot of people don't realize all the goes into security.

Hi All,
I am wondering what actually resolved this problem.  Was the problem really resolved?  I have a similar problem inside a windows service.  Any help is appreciated.
Thanks
