    It could be that the file is opened by another program somehow. That would give the error you described.
    I know that for torrents, it won't let you modify anything you are torrenting.

    If a metro app is still considered as running and has a file handle open, it won't let you modify it.

    I have this issue even with the Windows 10 TP :fear:, damn it.
    Takes me about a minute to wait and keep clicking "Try Again"...
    Maybe I should get a Mac?
