Where/ how can I view all the open files on a shared drive on SBS2011 Standard?

MSWarrior used Ask the Experts™
If I remember correctly, under SBS2003 server management console there used to be an option under shared folders that gave a list of all the opened files on any shared drive (say S: for instance).

We migrated to SBS2011 Std, but whe I go to server management console under shared folders, it does not give any such options. Any idea anyone?

It's just that I am trying to find out who has an excel file open that is locked for editing by anyone at the moment. Once I can find it I can kill that instance of file.

Many thanks,
