    Nagging file conflict in WHS

    I have been getting a "There are file conflicts" message that I can't make go away. The specific message says "Access denied," so when I try to delete the MP3 file in question, it won't let me. It won't even let me play it, or rename it, or anything. I have another copy of it, which I'd like to replace it with, but I have no idea how to make this file conflict error go away, which I could probably do if it would just let me delete the damn thing!

    Thanks in advance,

    Bob

    Well, I got a useful utility called Unlocker, which made it simple to delete the troublesome file, and now all is well. A word of caution, though... Unlocker is a lovely bit of software, but it's a minefield to get it installed without a lot of other crap you really don't want. Be careful.
