are they available to IIS? --Sometimes IIS will hold onto files much
longer than it should. 

IF they could have been served up by IIS, shut IIS down FROM THE DOS
1) enter "mtxstop" --this shuts down MTS
2) enter "net stop iisadmin /y" to close down the web services and the
IIS admin service.

You should be able to get to the files then. Outside of that, the only
way I've found to get around these is to punt the box. Not the most
glamorous of options, I know....
