RandomClown Posted November 30, 2008 Share Posted November 30, 2008 Hak 5 showed a program for XP that unlocks files in use & allows delete. Before I break my fist on my table, does anyone know of one that works for Vista? Half of the time I have folders [empty or not] that are NOT in friggin' use, but Vista keeps saying it IS. [no, restart does not help] How I delete them is I go to the directory & make a batch file with: rmdir /s /q "Stupid Folder\" del del.bat then run it. This is every time I have a locked folder. Vista seems to "Use" a directory [probably probing] most the time I click a folder. Then when I hit delete, it wont work. I ask here instead of google because I cannot trust the sources out there when downloading random programs. Thanks for reading. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
