I don't know if it is relevant, but I should add that in Win8 explorer =
is really bad at leaving handles open (worse than Win7 and it wasn't =
very good then).

It might we worth seeing whether this is the volume where the AFS cache =
is situated, but it doesn't seem relevant. =20

Other things you might want to check is whether there is a layered =
product installed which filters AFS ("fltmc instances -v =
\device\afsredirector") - these can get confused very easily.

You probably know this but the easiest way to check this is with =
handle.exe (available from Microsoft/sysinternals)..
