    I'm running Win XP Pro on my notebook PC connected to the company server.

    I have a file on the server (archive.pst) that I can't open (in Outlook) so I want to delete this pst file (and replace it with a backup version).

    Problem is, when I try to delete this file I get a "file is in use" error msg and I'm unable to do anything with this file.

    I do not have Outlook running and I have also tried to access the file in Safe Mode (with network).

    Any suggestions on what I can try to get rid of this file?
