Locking has nothing to do with this.

When harddrive (or hardfile) is opened, open parameters include share mode (which tells what other processes can do with this "file"). If hdf/drive is opened read-only: allow other read-only openers to open it. If opened read-write: no one else can open it (returns sharing violation error).
