  • Just to add to this it says that its the shared files that are open:- All the PCs on my network are off other than the one I am trying to use the WHS console on to remove the drive.

  • Sorry about all the posts
    It says the files are located in c:\fs\J\DE\shares\misc then the name of the files (4 in total)
    I removed this folder/files earlier in the day from my 'misc' shared folder I created as I no longer needed the files..

    Did you try rebooting the server?

    Can you please post the exact error message you're seeing (or, even better, take a pic of the error, post it on a hosted pic website, then post the link to it here)?
