I smell a potential future DFU enhancement here. Where DFU crawls the lock trees for you, given a filename.

Re: How do I know what is locking a file?

hi ana,
what i miss in the statement is :
$pipe sh dev/files DISK |sear sys$pipe file

if your default directory is on another disk you wont get the open files of the disk your problem is on.

Hoff.
That suggestion is a great idea.

Richard.

You're right. I forgot to put the device name when writing the post, but I was using the right syntax.

Thanks again.
