Deleting a file from your computer may not be as easy as it seems. Sometimes you get an error message telling you that the file is being used by another application and can't be erased. What's the solution then?

The solution is called Unlocker Portable: a simple tool that lets you get rid of those stubborn files that can't be deleted in the standard way. Unlocker Portable is dead easy to use, though a bit different from the desktop version. Being a portable version, this app is not embedded with Windows Explorer. So instead of right clicking the locked file, you have to select it from the program itself.

You'll be able to choose between deleting the file, renaming it and copying or moving it to another location. If the selected task can't be completed immediately, it'll be finished the next time you restart the computer.

Unlocker Portable doesn’t have any other options or configuration settings. It's meant to do just one thing, but does it really well. If you often have problems with locked files, this is the tool you're looking for.

With Unlocker you'll be able to delete those stubborn files that are blocked by other apps or processes.
