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

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.

  Thanks   Bob

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

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.
