Using the net file command in Windows, I can view all open shared files on a server. A maddening shortcoming of this tool is that it only displays truncated file paths, so if I have multiple files with the same name in a number of different directories (e.g., a directory for each date for the past 30 days), it's next to impossible to figure out which one is open.

Is there a way to get these full file paths to show? Or is there some other tool (besides net file) that I can use to view open shared files with full file paths?

Wow, right under my nose the whole time (I'd already been using other programs from PsTools for other purposes—just missed this one somehow). This is perfect; thanks! – Dan Tao Nov 30 '10 at 18:53
