    Files "in use" - can't be trashed

    Steve Fairbairn Level 5

      I ran into some slight trouble yesterday. Auntie Illie kept making .tmp files like "Acr191411766.tmp".

      I tried trashing them but got a message: "The operation cannot be completed because the item ... is in use."

      I quit Illie and rebooted but still can't get rid of the .tmp files.

      The original files were saved to a Mac server and I even tried trashing the items from the server but still got the same message.

      It strikes me that Acrobat has got something to do with it (because of the prefix) but the .ai fles were saved without pdf compatability.

      Any idea what's up?
