Move, rename, or delete locked files at your next system boot with this effective and easy-to-use freeware utility. EMCO MoveOnBoot's no frills interface has a combination of a drag-and-drop window and text buttons. It won't win any design awards, but it makes the app simple to operate. Help is included, but even inexperienced users will have this program mastered in minutes.

It can't get much easier to work with the locked files. You merely drag the problem file to the interface and the app displays a prompt dialog. Radio buttons list each of the program's options. Click the action you need performed, and press OK. MoveOnBoot will delete, move, or rename files or folders. The app also offers an easy method to bypass the prompt dialog. If you need to perform the same action on multiple files, you can simply call up a drag-and-drop window for that action and drop all your files there. All it takes to perform the actions is to boot your system.

The interface helpfully lists all actions to be performed on next boot and includes a log of previously performed actions. ECMO MoveOnBoot simplifies a function experienced users find difficult, and it does it in a way that even novices will understand. This is freeware everyone will need at some point, and it's a good addition to any user's toolbox.

Developer's Description

Move, rename, or delete files locked by your system.

MoveOnBoot is a simple free utility that helps you to manage locked file system resources. It allows you to rename, move or delete any file and folder, locked by system or another application.

MoveOnBoot doesn't terminate processes that hold locks, to unlock resources. Instead, it utilizes a much safer approach - it uses standard Windows mechanism for file system resources management immediately after the system restart, but before launching services and applications. This approach prevents resources locking by system processes and applications, so they can be renames, moved or deleted with no problems.

Application provides an easy-to-use interface for the real one-click management of locked resources. Using it, you can schedule delete, move and rename operations with selected locked files and folders to be executed at the next system restart.
