Unlocker used to be a great tool to know which process is using certain file and unlock it. But it’s marked as a malware now.

Process Explorer can also achieve the same result. If you don’t have it, you can download it from https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx

  • go to Find->Find Handle or Dll
  • type the file name or directory that is used
  • Click Search, all processes that are using this file or directory will be listed.
