JS - Cannot delete novabackup file

I have used robocopy command to move files within a one month period, it somehow hand at one of the files.

Now I saw that one of the files have been copied over but the source was still around.

So I thought that a simple deletion can remove the file but I got this error message;

"The action can't be completed because the file is open in System"

How do I close the file??

Try this. reboot may also work.


Go into computer management>Shared Folders> and delete the files in there.

You should now be able to go back to explorer and delete those files.
