Deleting a folder from a windows 2008 R2 sever.

On my windows sever 2008 R2 I have a folder the is empty of files. I am trying to delete it.  But I get this error.  

The action can't not be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program.

 I have try many ways to delete it and nothing has work for me

Thanks

  Bob

Use Process Explorer: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx

Run it, then press Ctrl+F and type part of your folder name. It will show all processes that have an open handle to that folder.

HTH,

Check via sharing if someone else has this folder open.  Try rebooting to clear all connections and then delete

Hi Dan. If I am reading this right it looks like StoreGrid.exe has a open handle on the folder.

I am looking to see just what StoreGrid.exe is.


Hi Cazz I have look see if someone else had the file open and nobody did and I have try more then once on rebooting to clear all connections and hat did not work

  Thanks   Bob

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Looks like it's your backup program. http://www.storegrid.co.za/

Close your Vembu backup process and see if the file is released.  Otherwise, can you reboot?  That will release the file just in case something locked up with the file open.

May be this will be of some use

Closing all file handles under a given folder programatically

Hope that helps :)
