    How to delete a idlk file

    Brian Murrell

      My computer crashed with Indesign files open. I couldn't reopen the files, kept getting "files are in use" error message. I was able to recover the files by renaming them. Now I want to trash the corrupt files.


      My question is how can I delete the corrupt Indesign file and it's IDLK file. All of our files are stored on a server here. I went to the server and it wouldn't let me delete them there.


      Error message: The operation can't be completed because the item "file name" is in use.
