"Best for resolving problems ejecting USB drives"

September 07, 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.

"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!

What's new in version 2.0 beta 2

Command line support

Now it's possible to call such LockHunter's actions as 'Unlock', 'delete file' and etc from the command line. Very useful for using in your scripts or to integrate to other programs.

Copy & rename actions added

Now you can not only delete a stubborn file but unlock and copy or rename it in one action.

UI improvements

Improved look and feel, ability to see the version information, and more...

Unloading DLLs from the locking processes

If the .dll is loaded from a specific folder you wish to delete or just unlock now the program allows to unload this .dll without terminating the process.

Full Explorer context menu integration

Now 64 bit installer integrates the item of the Explorer's shell menu into both 32 bit and 64 bit applications.

Bug fixes

  • No more "DeleteFile failed;code 5" error on reinstallation LockHunter
  • The locking processes continue displaying even after successful unlocking
