The following dialog box is not very uncommon. You might have seen this while trying to delete some file/folder from your machine. How do you deal with it?
Well, the main challenge here is that the dialog box doesn’t tell you which person or program is causing the issue. So, let’s start with finding that out first…
Download Process Explorer
Since we want to find out “Who” has this handle… Click on Find –> Find Handle or DLL, and type in the file name. In our case it is Module07
So, in our case here was the output…
When you double click on the process name, it will take you to the actual File in the lower pane (CTRL + L)
Right click on the selected row above and choose Close Handle. You may get a prompt like the following. Click Yes.
Now, try deleting the problematic folder again. SUCCESS !
