I frequently get an error dialog....

The command could not be completed because it contains items that are in use.

when trying to create an alias under OS9. This occured after reformatting my drive (G3 PB 3400 case) and reloading most of my software from backup CD Roms written with Adaptec DirectCD. I can create some alias files but have not figured out the pattern of when it fails. All files and applications appear to be closed but I get a list of open files running Alsofts Open Files utility.

Any suggestions?
