Determine User Who Is Currently Using A File

6 posts in this topic

How can I determine the user that has currently locked the use of a file?

I am unable to open something because another user is currently using a file.

thanks

I know I've used a program that comes with Windows XP (Pro), where you can

control your shared directiories...you can also see what user/computer who is

browsing and using your files...

But, I can't remember the name of the application.. :D

:D I know that someone here [at work] once figured out how to do that with VBScript, but I don't know how he did it... something to think on. :huh2:

Right click on My Computer, go to manage. Right click on your computer name and put in the name of the server hosting the file. Go down to shares, and you can see what is currently in use.
