    Unanswered: Datafile not physically removed - 10g

    Hi

    I'm a bit confused. I dropped 5 datafiles via Toad, 3 got physically deleted but 2 are still there. When I try to remove them manually I get:

    Code:
    Cannot Delete 'datafile_name'. It is being used by another person or program
    Please help?

    Regards
    Shajju

    I suspect Windoze OS.
    File(s) held open by another user/process/thread can not be removed/deleted by your process.

    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
