Delete/Erase Currently Used, Locked, Undeletable, Busy Files

Hi friends,

File Unlocker is for situations where you have tried to delete, move or rename a file or folder (subdirectory) under Windows only to receive a dialog box with an error message like "Cannot delete [filename]: It is being used by another person or program. Close any programs that might be using the file and try again." (or some other message about sharing violation or the file being in use). In some cases, closing "any programs that might be using the file" is easier said than done, since you might not be able to detect which program is locking that particular file. (Sometimes the culprit is none other than Windows Explorer, or some DLL loaded by it.) LONG PATH Tool works around this problem to delete the locked, busy, undeleteable or currently used file - on demand it does this by scheduling the file to be deleted the next time you reboot the machine. Also it can close the handle that the process (program) has open on that file, and delete the file. 

HOW TO: Delete an Undeletable or Locked File


Hi friends,
Have you ever run into a situation where you wanted to delete a file, but Windows simply wouldn’t allow you to do it? Personally, these things happen to me all the time, especially when I’m at a client’s house trying to get their machine clean of malware. Have you ever tried deleting a locked file using common windows commands? If so, then you’ll know that this is just not possible.
The main reason behind this is that the explorer.exe process locks files that are in use, effectively preventing you from deleting them. Usually, these files should not be touched, but sometimes, situations arise when you really need to erase some troublesome ones.
Fortunately, there is easy solution to delete those files.
