Windows is constantly upgrading and improving with all the new versions but there are some stuffs that are still the same. I know how bad it feels when you want to delete some file but you get this error message “Can’t delete Folder, it is being used by another person or program” or something like this “Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use”.
It feels very irritating to see these kind of messages and we need to reboot our computer to terminate all the processes that are using the file so that we can actually delete them. But for all those who don’t like to restart the computer here is a tool called as Unlocker and as the name suggests, it is a tool that actually unlocks the file off the processes that are accessing it so that we can take actions on it.
Moreover using the tool is very simple too as you just need to install the tool in your system which will configure it in the right click context menu so that next time you come across this message you just need to right click on the file, choose the option of Unlocker and get the file unlocked.
The tool also allows you to choose the next necessary actions like deleting the file, moving the file or renaming the file. These actions wouldn’t have been possible if the file was locked and Unlocker was not present in your system. The tool is kind of a must have tool in your system as this error is something which almost everyone of us faces in our lives and as using the tool will help us.
The tool Unlocker works on all version of Windows whether it is XP, Vista, 7 or 8 and is free to use too. So if you liked the tool, do give it a try. [via]
