Unlocker, very useful!


Recommended Posts

I have used this neat little program on many occasions. I quote this from their main site:


"Ever had such an annoying message given by Windows?

It has many other flavors:


Cannot delete file: Access is denied

There has been a sharing violation.

The source or destination file may be in use.

The file is in use by another program or user.

Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.


Unlocker is the solution!


1. Simply right click the folder or file and select Unlocker

2. If the folder or file is locked, a window listing of lockers will appear

3. Simply click Unlock All and you are done!"


Unlocker is one of my all time favorites! :)

Nice piece of software. I find Windows often never lets me delete huge avi files, and I get the dreaded permssion denied. Usually a restart fixes this, or I use MoveOnBoot, for more pesky files


MOB is somewhat more well known, and I'll think I'll stick with it, but this software is quite good in its own right.



MOB is available here:
