I'm stumped. I've got a small but growing group of files on a shared NT
server that won't be deleted not matter what I try. They're not in use
(according to the server manager 'files in use' thingy) and we've all got
full permission to do whatever we want, but these files (some zips and at
least one html) refuse to be deleted, returning the standard 'maybe the
file's in use and you're to stupid to realize it' message.

I remember the days when a quick pop out to DOS would allow me to delete
ANYTHING. Not no more.

Any ideas? There's a cold beverage of your choice on the line here
(although, it may be a cyber beverage if you're not near SoCal . . . )

Thanks gang.
