DelLater can delete files which are locked, when Windows restarts. DiamondCS DelLater uses the only method recommended by Microsoft to delete files that are in use.
Version: 1.1Have you ever tried to delete a file, only to be frustrated by messages like these?
Operating System: Windows
The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.
Cannot delete file: It is being used by another person or program.
Close any programs that might be using the file and try again.
Here is an easy solution. DiamondCS DelLater uses the only method recommended by Microsoft to delete files that are in use. This method is based on documentation from Microsoft that describes a function called MoveFileEx, and DelLater has been carefully designed to be technically accurate to the guidelines set forth in the article. This is the same technique used by anti-virus scanners when they're unable to delete in-use files. Although the MoveFileEx function isn't supported under Windows 95/98/ME, the article does describe how to implement the same functionality, which DelLater does. Don't worry if you don't understand the Microsoft article - DelLater simplifies everything.
