    Could be the file is still opened previously and not closed yet, may take help of profiler.

    BTW what is the level of service pack on SQL & OS?

    Welcome to the forums.
    The original Q posted 5 years back and you give very little information about the problem, make sure to supply more details to get accurate solution.
