You can unlock or delete files that are in use by killing Windows processes.
It is known that to delete a file used or opened in Windows, you must first look for the program that uses it, in turn, the program must be closed in Task Manager. A rather tedious and cumbersome operation, but in support of the user I discovered the ThisIsMyFile application. As a result, this application can scan the selected folder and display all files locked or protected, allowing you to unlock them and even delete them. At the same time, the application analyzes all the files in the selected folder and displays a list of the corresponding process ID, file type, and process path that blocks it.
ThisIsMyFile has a minimalist interface, the options are as simple as possible, and working with ThisIsMyFile should be easy even for a beginner user.
As mentioned above, you can select multiple files where appropriate, unblock them or simply delete them completely, and after the deletion process you can choose the computer restart option to apply changes to your operating system. Be careful, do not delete the files before analyzing the path and the name of the running program, inadvertently you may lose important data or compromise the operating system.
In conclusion, ThisIsMyFile can kill any process that is in progress and thus unlocking access to files that are blocked.
* Create a copy : If you want to copy the file before delete it.
* Unlock only : Only unlock the file not deleted
* Reboot & Delete : For very stubborn candidates, activate this option. The system will be shut down and the file and folders will be deleted at system startup.
* Process killer : Can be found under More ThisIsMyFile. This can be used to terminate or kill specific processes.
