Hello all :ciao:

I'm trying to delete a folder on my desktop where I scanned some photos with some imaging software. Now that I've e-mailed the files I want to delete them, but there are errors telling me the file or folder is in use and can't be removed. Is there a way to remove them safely?

Try this:

http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/

It's one of the handiest apps you'll use :) It unlocks any processes that have a handle on the file/folder and then lets you delete/rename it. Just be sure to stop it loading up each time you start your PC, as there's no real need.
