Hi Nick


Go into Comp management on the machine and go to shared folders in there
is the open files area the file should be there and you can right click
and choose close open file.

        Ok, this should be easy: I have a file that is locked as open,
even though it isn't in actual use: we're using TS, so I assume a
crashed session didn't release it properly.


        I can use PSFile, and see that the fiel is indeed open, that it
has 3 fiel locks on it, etc. But how can I unlock it with out a reboot?
