10.5: Find out which program/process is locking a file
Authored by: chadvonnau on Nov 23, '09 11:26:05AM

Not trying to cause FUD, but that app never worked for me in a meaningful way. It seems like it's doing what it's supposed to, but it never actually helped me "unstick" anything on the few occasions I tried it. I think that stuck apps/volumes are a problem where it's usually easier and, in my experience, more reliable to just restart.

Also have a look at Lock-unmatic. Its a gui for lsof, and displays which processes are blocking the files.

Unfortunately, it does sometimes have problems with special chars in filenames.
