That's what Windows does. Get used to it.
Actually they are probably bugs due to some components in use not shutting down/ not allowing multiple instances to run. just replacing a rendered clip should not be any issue whatsoever. Of course there could also be any number of other issues like external programs also having their hands on the files for indexing, virus scanning, syncing with cloud services or whatever. Impossible to say. You have not provided enough info.
It's good to know that it SHOULD work as I'm used to--means I've gotta tack down the interfering culprit. I'm going to try shutting down whatever I can one by one and see if I can track it down and report back in case anyone else runs into this issue.
I dunno. I've never been able to do anything to any media file that any Adobe application is using. Can't delete it, can't move, rename it, overwrite it or anything.
It seems like an OS thing to guard against those Homer Simpson "DOH!" moments people occasionally have.
Hi Matt Chandronait,
Sorry about this frustration. Did you ever solve the "can't overwrite the file because it's in use" issue? It would be great to hear back about what solved it so that others may benefit. Or are you still experiencing this bug?
