Lightweight application which enables you to perform management operations (e.g. delete, rename, move) with files that are currently in use

editor's review




CopyLock is a software tool which can be used in order to replace, delete or rename files that are still in use with just a click of the button.

The upper hand of a portable app

This program is portable, which means that you can easily skip the installation process. As a result, unlike installers, it is not going to add any new entries to the Windows registry or hard drive without your approval, and no leftovers will remain on the disk after its removal.

Another important aspect you should take into account is that you can move the program files to an external data device and thus, run CopyLock on the fly, on any computer you have been granted access to.

Manage files and folders and view the process using them

This software utility enables you to perform management operations with any kind of item, including those that are locked or are currently being used by another process, such as Trojan or system files. To be more accurate, you can easily replace, delete or rename specified items, as well as delete or move entire directories to another location with the help of the built-in file browsers.

These items are going to be displayed in the main window as a list, and you can enable showing source paths, downgrade and automatic close. It is also possible to view details pertaining to the process using the source or destination items, in a new window, along with name, ID and address.


To wrap it up, CopyLock is an efficient piece of software, yet it is not dedicated to novice users, as it can do a lot of damage in the wrong hands. The interface is intuitive and simple, the response time is good and it does not burden the computer’s performance.
