when not able to delete a folder or file...

when windows says 'some other process is using the file', what tool can we use to find out what process is keeping a hold on the file?

thanks.

Handle is a good tool for doing exactly that.

Handle.exe from sysinternal suite will definitely help but if that file is locked by system process, reboot is the last option you have.
