I am currently "cleaning up" our network to have all of our files on one server as they are currently on two different areas - where I am running into trouble is deleting old files that are no longer required. Every time I try to delete certain folders the message is:

*"The operation cannot be completed because the item <folder name> is in use".*

I have attempted to reboot the Mac, login as a different user and so far have been unsuccessful. The only way I have been able to delete the folder has been to head into another department and delete the folder on a PC (which strangely enough will work). There are also AppleDouble files that appear on the PC but I am leaving them alone...

Any help would be appreciated - it is annoying that I am unable to delete certain folders and files due to them being in use, when clearly they are not.

I have been reading up on the web about it and Terminal seems to be a program that I am able to use, but I am not very familiar with it at all - so any tips would be welcome.
