do you do when you cant safely remove an
external USB drive because Windows indicates that
some process has it locked? The problem usually
occurs when there are no applications running so
it is less than obvious which program is the
culprit. Wouldnt it be nice is someone had
produced a utility that would (a) tell you about
the problem, and (b) fix it for you? Enter
Lockhunter a free software tool designed
specifically to resolve issues with locked files
When Lockhunter is installed, it integrates into the context menu for File Explorer. You can then load File Explorer and simply right-click on the name of the file that is locked. Select What is locking this file? Lockhunter will show the errant process and give you the option to unlock the file, delete it, or choose from a number of other options. Click on the Unlock It! icon. Problem solved!
