Forcing system(ISS) locks to be removed folders and files

P: n/a
I want to create a web based file manager for my web site that allows me to
move/copy/rename/delete files and directories in my web site.
Just from my experience with FTP software, this can be a problem if the
system has locked a folder or file because it is in use. Is there any way to
use code to force the system to release locks on a folder/file?

Thanks in Advance

No, I have not got an answer... but I guess you figured that I meant "IIS",
not "ISS"

You cannot use code to break the lock. Only the owner of the handle can
release the lock That would be the file or application that maintains a read
or write lock on the resource.
