Delete File in use by WinUAE

Is there a way to delete Windows shared files in use by WinUAE?

Is this is discounted, however, I found the solution to unlock and delete the file without quitting WinUAE.

I think "not enough information" is the answer.

If you are using some windows utility to unlock files, you are on your own. Don't even attempt to report anything if things go badly wrong after unlocking even single file!

I used to test multiple archives and then to be able to clear I had to quit from WinUAE. Now I found a small remedy with an old Utility per Windows named Unlocker to unlock; at the time I found no side effects.
