As a matter of course, Windows prevents users from deleting, replacing, or moving a file when it is opened by another program. The best thing to do, therefore, to delete or alter protected files is to look for the program that is using the file in question and end the process.

However, rummaging through a mass of files could be arduous. Thanks to ThisIsMyFile, you have a tool that displays the locked and/or protected files and lets you modify or delete them.

ThisIsMyFile has a simple layout and quick options to add the file or folder that you intend to unlock, delete or modify. There are three methods to add the target file or folder: use the browse button to search for the file, drag and drop the file in the main window, and drag and drop the file on top of the ThisIsMyFile icon or desktop shortcut.

The program’s features include:

Create a copy

  • If you want to copy the file before delete it.
