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.

Subject: [windows2000] How to release a file lock?

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?
