  • The file is in use by another program or user.
Installation is straightforward, and to use follow this:
1) Select Directory of the locked file.

2) On the main Interface investigate the process that prevent deleting, right click on it and choose Handle Option then Unlock or Unlock All.

A pop-up message will warn you about the possibilities:
This Action will close all displayed files. You may loose your data if you aren’t sure in what you are doing. Are you sure you want to continue?

Clicking on Yes will initiate unlocking the locked file and depending on the situation a reboot is required to delete the locked file permanently.
