HELP Cannot delete files

Hi, I have rendered several video clips to Quicktime (.mov) Now, when I try to delete them it gives me an error message that I cannot delete the file because it is being used somewhere else and to please close all applications. Well, I have tried everything I can think of and still cannot delete these files. Any ideas??? Bob Safay

When that happens to me, a re-boot generally cures things.

You could also download a software called "Unlocker", its a freeware.
It Release the hooks on the file you want to delete. Sometime the file yo try to delete, is used by explorer or other software...

Try it, it works great.

If you are in detail view in Explorer, select choose details under view and deselect everything except the name.

I am new to Vegas and computer editing. I am having the same problem but not just wth rendered files.

I have done several edits of the same project and when I finally decide which one I want to use I then want to delete the other edits. When I try to I get the same message that is the premise of this thread, that what I am trying to delete is either open or being used somewhere else.

Because I have been afraid that somehow if I got it to delete it might delete the footage or something I have not attempted any more deletes of projects or rendered files. I sure would like to clean that up though and get rid of some.
