I can't figure out why I am getting an access denied error. The file does not seem to be in use.
I tried to drop my database and get this error:
AsynchronousDiskAction::DoDeleteFile: delete failure on backup device 'C:\Program Files\Datalink\SFS\SqlServer\SFS_ISLAND_20060501.ldf'. Operating system error 5(Access is denied.).
The database is dropped from sysdatabases, but the physical files are still there.
