I am trying to rename a folder, but I'm getting the following error:

The action can't be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program.
Close the folder or file and try again.

How does one figure out what program is causing this problem? I've already closed everything on the server for my user. I don't want to restart the server if I can avoid it.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

One could use Unlocker first then move or rename the file –  Darius Mar 25 '13 at 18:55
