    Cannot move file .psd

    Photoshop 7.x
    Windowx Xp


    Im trying to organize my image files into new directories for easier retrieval but Windows claims the file is in use by another application and cannot be moved.

    I dont even have Photoshop running, nor are the files in use by any other person or application. I suspect the problem has to do with the small icon that photoshp created next to the file's name - a smaller version of the actual image.

    Have you tried rebooting your computer? And then trying again? If that doesn't work do a full shutdown and restart your machine and try that. Sometimes windows holds on to the file in the background.

    Some processes in PhotoShop just refuse to shut down, even when you close all Adobe programs. Try restarting your computer, and doing your organizing before opening PhotoShop.

    1.    Open the corrupt Photoshop file in Fireworks.
    2.    Use Fireworks to save it as a .psd Photoshop file. (Important: Do Not save it as a Fireworks file or another extension, because Photoshop may not recognize the layers, or you could lose data.)
    3.    Remember to give your file a different name when saving, so you won't overwrite your original. (A good idea would be to create a backup of your original before trying this procedure.)
    4.    Open your newly created file in Photoshop.
    5.    Remember that many effects will not show in Fireworks, but should show up in the Photoshop layers.
