Unlocker – free up your Windows


Unlocker. If you’ve ever been driven mad trying to track down the reason behind an error message which says you can’t delete a file or folder in Windows because it’s ‘being used by another person or program’, then this little freeware utility is for you. Super useful.

 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!

  • Nice find indeed! Now if you have something for that pesky “Device cannot be ejected because it contains files that are in use by another application” message, my life will be complete…. I run lots of portable apps. :-)

  • I’ll take a look. :-)
