We have a WinXP machine with a share that acts as the file server for our small office. When I need to shut down the machine, I use the
net file command to see open shares. Open files seem to have either 0 or 3 locks on them.
Do users need to save and close all files before I shut the machine down? Or, if the file is open, can they still save it to the shared folder after a reset? Or does it depend on what application is accessing the file?
