Windows 2003 Delete File Problem
Posted on 2007-08-01
I am running a windows 2003 server as a file server. Due to the large number of users, I cannot reboot the machine. I am a domain Admin on the system so permissions should not be a problem. Attempting to delete a .pdf file the system generates an error that states the file cannot be deleted because it is in use by another process. Opening Computer Management and navigating to Open Files, the file does not show up as being open. I have attempted to delete the file from the share, from Windows Explorer on the console and from a command prompt on the console. I am looking for a way to unlock this file and delete it without rebooting the system, any thoughts?
