Error Code 32
Mar 15th, 2017 at 7:29pm

Just in the last day I have had a couple tasks start giving me an Error Code: 32 The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. We have about 16 of these Copy File tasks setup with the same basic layout to copy from a share to a sub folder and catch duplicates. Permissions Setups are the same and Share setups are the same. The issue is with just about 3 of these tasks. We checked for anything holding the tasks and the only thing that accesses the file is a service we have for Watch Directory. We have also disabled our Antivirus protection for testing with out any success. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I am not sure what is happening...

I don't think your WD tasks could be conflicting with each other because a "Copy" task needs read-only access to the file and so multiple tasks can access (copy) the same file without problem.

Just in case this *is* caused by multiple WD tasks accessing the same file.....

You could replace your tasks by only 1 "Sort Files" task, see

Or replace those tasks by one "Run Subtasks" task, see
