Find the location of file that are open in Windows with this handy tool

Handle is a fantastic application by Mark Russinovich that is hosted on Microsoft’s technet site.

“Ever wondered which program has a particular file or directory open? Now you can find out. Handle is a utility that displays information about open handles for any process in the system. You can use it to see the programs that have a file open, or to see the object types and names of all the handles of a program.”
