While testing a cfcollection delete, I noticed that not only will it not remove the collection from CFAdmin (refreshing the collections page shows the collection still there), but if you go into the folder and try to manually delete the files, an error message appears saying that the files cannot be deleted because they are still open in java.
The only way (so far) that I've been able to delete the files is by stopping the CF service, delete the files, then restart the CF service. Both Verity and Solr.
This is also preventing the collections from being optimized (no change), but not preventing indexing.
Is this a bug? Has anyone else experienced this?

As you're running windows, I just found this in the documentation
You cannot delete Verity collections on Windows if they are created outside of the ColdFusion collections directory or on a drive other than C:, D: or E:. To use a different drive letter, edit the cf_dir/verity/common/verity.cfg file and replace an entry with the directory you wish to use
Is it your case?
Thank you for your reply, Cyril. No, that is not my case.
I have the collections in C:\ColdFusion9\collections, which I understand to be the default CF collections directory.
Also, this isn't limited to Verity; it's happening to Solr, too.
