Winbatch & Studio locking files.
« on: June 09, 2013, 01:24:23 am »
I have a script that is moving / renaming files and folders but I can't test it because Studio and WinBatch are locking the folders I want to remove.  See attached.
Thanks

George

Again insufficient information to give a definitive answer but there are several conditions that cause the OS to lock a file or directory for a process.  One common cause is that a directory is the process's CWD.

Always something more to learn.  I always thought it was the programs themselves locking a folder.
