Thanks for the post - I believe what you are experiencing is actually an issue/feature of Windows itself. When this happens again, please try opening any file (file type does not matter) from any other folder (must be located in a different folder). If this is the issue, then doing this will release the handle on the file.
The thing is that I am building a project folder. The folder structure and names are being changed for example. The folder x was reported in being use even after when I completely emptied it
I have turned off caching of thumbnails in hidden thumbs.db files and
caching of thumbnail pictures from gpedit.msc. So, the problem is not thumbnails (since the drive I'm using is network drive).
Previously this folder x contained 1 pdf file which had 12 pages and was actually combination of 2 documents which each contain 6 pages. I printed these 2, 6 paged documents out in folder x and moved to folder y. I deleted the original file, shut down the program, but still windows claims that the folder is in use. After few gray hairs more, I realized that PDF-XChange viewer saves the last printing path when you print to file with it. I printed out to another directory and after that the folder was not in use. So, this is the programs cache/temp fault. How do I clean it or remove the entire caching/temping from it?
