File Governor is an advanced program which allows for files and folders within the system to be unlocked so that normal file I/O operations can be completed when normally they would not be able to be due to operating system restrictions for files currently in use. Once a file or folder is unlocked you will be able to force-close the file’s handle, rename, delete, etc.
This tool can unlock files and folders in use by other programs and that can't be deleted the traditional way. You can delete files that cause the following errors: “The source or destination file may be in use”, “Cannot delete file: Access is denied”, “The file is in use by another program or user”. Safely close all the opened handles of the locked objects so you can delete the locked files and folders.
