Hai!

I am using Windows Vista OS

I had created SGF file in WIN RAR (>8 GB) which in turn became ".exe" file.

Now I am unable to delete/ rename/ move the file.

When I delete the file it says " The action cannot be completed because the file is open in another program ".

I am unable to delete the file even in the DOS mode...

Help me to solve this problem..


Thanks,
Vijay

I've come across a similar problem before. Make sure that it's not open in any program, obviously. Also, close WinRAR if that's running. If that doesn't help reset the computer and when it boots up try deleting it again. That's what worked for me when this happened.

You may have already seen these, but these people had the same problem.
