I have, amongst a large number of image files in a particular folder, an image file that I am unable to save or delete.
When I endeavour to delete the file a message comes up that the file is "already in use or left open".
If I work on the file and then try to save it the message comes up "could not save because the file is already in use or left open".
The file type is tif. It will save in psd format.
When I endeavour to move the folder in which the file is placed I get the same message and the folder cannot be moved.
All very exasperating!
I would very much appreciate some help, thank you.

What operating system are you using? If it's a recent Windows you may have 'permissions' set to not allow any changes.
Thank you for your quick response, Loweskid.
I have recently upgraded from Vista to Windows 7. I will go on a hunt now for "permissions" to see what I can find.
Will let you know the results.
Vincent - eureka! - the problem is solved thanks to your suggestion.
I have been able to delete the "offending" tif file and also move the folder to its proper location.
I right clicked on the image and adjusted the security settings. All is well and thank you very much.
Congratulations on the award of your ARPS - well done! I have visited your web site. You are certainly a travelled person and have many fine images.
