Find open files and their handles, to solve sharing violation issues, with OpenedFilesView
OpenedFilesView is a small, portable and free application that will make a list with all the opened files on your PC. For each opened file it also displays: handle value, read / write / delete access, file position, the process that opened the file, and more. OpenedFilesView will let you close one or more opened files, or terminate the process that opened these files. You will need this program especially when you try to delete / move / open a file and you get one of the following error messages:
Cannot delete [filename]: There has been a sharing violation. The source or destination file may be in use.
Cannot delete [filename]: It is being used by another person or program. Close any programs that might be using the file and try again.
OpenedFilesView will show you which process locked your file. Closing the right process will solve this problem. You can also release the file by closing the handle from inside the OpenedFilesView utility, in which case you should know that the program that opened the file may become unstable, and even crash.
