Error deleting file or folder in windows? try Unlocker!

We often come across these annoying messages while working on windows operating system ,
  • cannot delete file : Access is denied.
  • the file is in use by another program or user.
  • there has been sharing violation.
  • make sure the disk is not full or write protected and that file is not currently in use.
  • the source or destination file is in use.                                                            (UPDATED)
what we generally do is,just click ok and then keep calm until the task gets completed.
But no,there is a best alternative,and that is Unlocker
Get it here ( download )

  • All you have to do is, install the software and simply right-click the file or folder you want to delete and select Unlocker.

  • If the file or folder is locked or in use, a window listing of lockers will appear.
  • Click unlock all and you're done!   

There may be some files which cannot be deleted instantly,but they surely can be removed during the next boot.
