Windows 7: Issue moving VLC .mkv media files from folder to folder, Error Reportd

Issue moving VLC .mkv media files from folder to folder, Error Reportd

Hello all,

Thank you in advance for any help leading to the resolution of my long going issue.
Whenever I download movies into my download folder, sometimes certain files remain operable and i could still watch them, though I cannot delete nor move the file anywhere. I can only copy the file to a new folder, but then it is also not deletable or moveable.

I get an error like this:

1) The file isn't in use, and I have enough memory to copy file.
It's frustrating as its eating my memory by copying the file.

I just want to remove them so i can get them off my computer and recover wasted space.

I have had that problem for quite a while, still haven't solved it myself, so I just use a program called unlocker, free and easy to use and good for problems like yours. Cheers

thank you for quick resolution, after months and months with no clue what to do, FINALLY I'm able to remove file using the Unlocker tool found on:

UNLOCKER 1.9.1 BY CEDRICK 'NITCH' COLLOMB

For those who come across a similar issue with not being able to remove files off of their pc, download the Unlocker program designated to your specific operating system, 32 or 64 bit, makes a difference.

cheers!

This seems crazy to me. I have a folder with a lot of TV shows labelled with the date of showing. When I sort them by "date" they end up all over the place, not in chronological order due to the way the files have been named. So I want to drag them into correct order. With Vista this was fine,...
