Sounds like there are open files on the drive.  Do you perhaps have the swap file, or part of it located on that drive?  If not you might try using the Drive Manager to dismount the drive.  If you can and then remount it that should close open files.

It seems the issue is with our anti-virus software. We use Vipre, which runs from a server. For some reason,  I have to manually stop the scan on this computer, otherwise it would run continuously. But Vipre is certainly not scanning the entire hard drive at one time, so I don't know why it would have it all locked. But once I shut off the scan, I can rename the directories. So I am sure it's related.

This issue has gone past the original problem that this question was posted for so I am going to close this question.

I am giving Portable tech the points, though as I mentioned, the actual issue was with my AV.

Thanks for the response.
