    "Best for resolving problems ejecting USB drives"

    September 7, 2013  |   By whamjamer

    Version: LockHunter (64-bit) 2.0 beta 2

    Pros

    works well
    simple

    Cons

    none so far

    Summary

    I use several passport 1T and 2T drives and would often get the error message that the drive was still in use when I've already closed all programs and wanted to remove the drives. I've tried other products to solve the problems in ejecting USB drives but this worked best for me.

    Version: LockHunter (64-bit) 2.0 beta 2

    Pros

    None that I could determine.

    I have several files that I cannot access for permission reasons of some sort and LockHunter did not help at all.

    "Does exactly what I wanted it to very quickly"

    March 20, 2013  |   By Jboy65

    Version: LockHunter (64-bit) 2.0 beta 2

    Pros

    * Installation quick and painless
    * It's free
    * It doesn't appear to have any unwanted malware or pop-up's (so long as you do the "Advanced User" and override their coupon toolbar they try to install)
    * It quickly finds what processes are locking files or folders and gives some very helpful, intuitive options of what to do, including deleting the files, or what I wanted, which was to unlock the file by closing associated processes

    Cons

    * Not sure whether or not to call it a "con," but when I told it to end a system process, it wouldn't do it because of that, so I had to go do it manually. But hey, at least it told me which confounded process was locking the folder so I could actually do that, after which I went and moved the folder as I was trying unsuccessfully to do until I downloaded this software

    Summary

    Bottom line, if like me you get really frustrated when trying to move or delete a file or folder because Windows says it's in use, but you have no open programs and can't figure which cotton-pickin' process is locking it up, then get this little gem and the Heavens will open up and angels will sing!
