There are two issues here:

1. An app has locked a file for exclusive access. This is good. If two programs were to write on the file, the result would be mangled ... tantamount to losing the file entirely. That would be bad. So don't attempt to "fix" or override this.

2. File (or folder) permissions are "wrong". You are denied access inappropriately. The solution has always stymied me. My "fix" is to take ownership of the parent folder and change its ACLs so as to open up the permissions to the folder. This is not good security, but it works.

Using icacls, the folder ACL looks like this:
Quote:
<MY-COMPUTER-NAME>\<MY-USER-NAME>: (OI)(CI)(F)
<MY-COMPUTER-NAME>\None: (OI)(CI)(F)
Everyone: (OI)(CI)(F)
BTW: I'm using Cygwin, which creates a group called "None" ... which explains that second ACE, above.
Its GUID is: S-1-5-21-2474832891-817950433-1932893390-513

From somewhere, somehow, a folder named "24cd9e4542d29590bce925ec30" has been created in my W7x86pro root dir. Trying to look inside, I had to "permanently get access". But then inside it, there are a whole lot of folders named things like 1025, 1028, 1029, etc, ending with 3076, and 3082. ...
