Why can’t I delete or move a file or folder? What program is stopping me from deleting or moving a file or folder?
The Process Explorer from Microsoft, amongst other things, will list the processes that are currently accessing
the file or folder. You can download the Microsoft Process Explorer from here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx
When you launch the Process Explorer pick Find from the menu.
Enter the file or folder name you are trying to move or delete and pick the Search button. The applications that are accessing the file will be listed in
the Search Window.
