File sharing violation problem win2K client on SBS2003 domain

Hi Experts,

Odd and very infrequent problem cropping up.
I am creating some very large files rendering in Rhino and then processing the monsters in Photoshop CS2.

After finishing working on the files and with both Rhino and PS closed I cannot rename files. I get the old "sharing violation. The source or destination file may be in use" beast.
Rebooting client and trying again gives same result.
Logging into client as user with domain Admin permissions has same result.
If I log into server as administrator I CAN rename files.

I tried creating other (smaller) files from PS in the same offending directory and all behaves normally. I can delete or rename to my hearts content.

MOST peculiar. i suspect a Win2000 issue here but i could be wrong
Any help greatly appreciated

Thanks, Steve

Thanks Husbi. I'm sure that would work, but I'm more interested in finding out what is not releasing the file lock.
I'm starting to suspect Photoshop running on w2k is the culprit here.
Time I upgraded to new stuff I think.
I'll keep this open for another day and then close it off if no-one has any bright ideas.

Thanks, Steve
