    dontcha just hate it when you try to do something in windoze and you get
    a message saying windoze can't do that because the file or whatever is
    being used by, or is open in, another program, but it doesn't tell you
    what program, and you don't have any other programs running that are
    using it anyway! (but Rod never gets that message coz he's too clever
    for windoze)

    Yes, that should be done better.
    Never seen that happen.
    Wrong, as always.

    like many other things..
    It happens if I try to cut'n'paste or move files or folders, but not
    always. if I reboot the problem goes away, but not if I only restart.
    it was just some levity for a bit of fun

    I seem to have it happen often, but then I seem to be moving, and renaming files a lot.

    I usually do a restart to clear it. But it is a bugger. Should be more details in the error report.
    Good old windoze.

    Cheers Don...

    Hardly any in fact and there is still some stuff it does better
    than the alternatives, particularly the top and bottom and scroll
    here entrys in the right click menu in the vertical scroll bar.
    I do that all the time when moving big PVR files around to
    make space for the current evening's recording. And when
    shifting stuff that I have torrented to a USB stick for someone
    to take to their place. Never seen that happen even once.
    Never seen that either.

    I don’t, normally only when renaming or moving
    something I do have open with another app.
    I do move the PVR files around a lot, mainly to
    make more space for the evening's recording.

    Don’t rename a hell of a lot, mainly because its mostly
    stuff like pdf files that do make sense to rename, but
    in many ways its better to keep the original name so
    you can be sure that you have the best available etc.
    I normally know what has got it open when that happens.
    Yeah, that info is certainly available to the system
    so it should certainly present it in the error message.

    yeh, that's when I get it. trying to move folders. but I find if I move
    the files in the folder first, sometimes that works, and I can then move
    the folder.
    surprising that it hasn't been done
