I created a large BIN file (800MB) and now WindowsXP won't let me delete it. I've tried deleting it, renaming it, moving it... and I always get the same responce: "Cannot delete: It is being used by another person or program.Close any programs that might be using this file and try again."
I've rebooted my system at least 12 times, signed in as different users, closed all non-system programs that were running, tried to delete in safe-mode, command-prompt and debugging mode. My drive is formatted NTFS, so I can't use a boot disk.
The file is causing my computer to slow to a crawl.
(It's in XP Pro and my user name is the administrator.)
XP won't send it to the recycle bin if it's too big, it'll just ask you if you want to permenantly delete it. I was using daemon tools to run some iso's and I had to uninstall it to delete them for some reason since it wouldn't let them go hehe.
seems odd that its slowing down your system (unless you are low on hdd space), what program created it? I cant think why it would not allow you to delete it, unless maybe its a virtual cd drive or somthing? there HAS to be a service running that isnt allowing this to be deleted, have a look in services and see if you can locate it.
