Disk First Aid: "Open Files"??????
I need some help.
Every couple of days after booting into Os 9.22, if I open Disk First Aid, it lists "open files" under several partitions, even though NO applications are open.
Running disk first aid does not correct the message.
I have to rebuild the desktop of all partitions to get rid of that message.
Anyone know why I get "open files" on various partitions?
What effect do "open files" have on the computer?
How to prevent this from happening?
Thanks for any response.

There's many reasons why files may be open without you realizing it - from background applications or even file sharing.

The utility List Open Files will give you a list of the open files on your system.

They should have no effect on your system, disk-wise.

Though they will stop DFA from scanning those portions (likely very small) of your drive.

The open files, most likely, is the Virtual Memory file
