Hi everybody!

I have a to find the list of files locked by a process. The list will be logged for analyse purposes. If the list contains a speciffic file the lock must be released in order to move the file. The locking process must not be killed.

hi
if you want to move the file?, you can move it directly.
file.move(source, destination);

you don't have to unlock to move the file.
