Cannot move file .psd
Posted on 2012-09-04
Im trying to organize my image files into new directories for easier retrieval but Windows claims the file is in use by another application and cannot be moved.
I dont even have Photoshop running, nor are the files in use by any other person or application. I suspect the problem has to do with the small icon that photoshp created next to the file's name - a smaller version of the actual image.
This problem prevents me from being able to drag and drop files from one directory, and move them into another. Ive tried to do this in safe mode but I encountered the same error.
I suppose I could open each individual file using Photoshop, save it in a new location, and then go back and delete the original, but the number of files I have to deal with is voluminous and this method would take quite a long time.
It'd be so much easier if I could just open the directory (within windows) where the files are located, select the files I want to move, and them drop them in the new location - there must be a way I could accomplish this. Any help would be appreciated.
