Just out of curiosity, has anyone else been running into an unusual amount of "permission denied" and "file is in use by another process, can't save to this location" type errors in their Windows 7 system? I seem to get this everyday while working with something. For an example, I downloaded a file, copied it to another drive, then decided to delete the source. Permission denied resulted. The file had already completed transferring to the destination (was a small file). Also, I just opened up one of my batch scripts to modify a few things, and when I went to save, it gives me a "file in use, cannot save to this location" crap. And more on, when I'm working on a coding project in Visual Studio 2008 SP1, up-to-date, I usually run into the same stuff. The compiler will not work, because it cannot gain access to the files within the bin or release folder. This was a fairly common issue, it seems, and you could fix it by creating a pre-compile script to delete the files before running. However, this fix didn't seem to work all of the time for me and I still run into the error about 60-70% of the time if I do too many quick compiles within a certain time range. I'm running the original Windows 7, direct from Microsoft (checksum passed). I've only integrated a few updates into my image using dism. I have a program that is suppose to "unlock" a file so I can do whatever I want to with it, but by the time I actually find that app buried somewhere 10 folders deep on some drive, I can just delete it normally. After about 2 minutes or so, I will regain access to these files. I can't afford to wait 2 minutes to do a basic delete operation. Has anyone else here noticed an overwhelming number of these lock issues? Perhaps this could be attributed to a service I have disabled? Anyone have any ideas?
