I have an AVI file (50meg) that would not get deleted or renamed due to being used by another program. No program is visibly holding it.
I tried playing other clips to release a possible hold, rebooting, logging in as a different user, looking at Services and Processes for possible clues, but of no avail.
Some potentially relevant info: it plays on RealOne but not Win Media Player, takes a while to load, was partially copied from a larger AVI file that is now gone.
I’m on Win XP Home. My C drive has 2 gig of available space.
