Unable to delete a file after opening in Adobe acrobat DC and then closing it unless I close the whole program
If I wish to delete a file which has been opened and then closed in Adobe Acrobat DC, I need to close the Adobe program to delete the file. Without closing the Adobe, I cannot delete the file. It says "cannot delete the file as it is open in Adobe Acrobat DC"
I too have this infuriating problem, and the issue has plagued Acrobat DC (the full app) for many years through many iterations of Windows. Other software cannot rewrite a PDF file even after the file has been closed in Acrobat. Even closing Acrobat itself does not always solve the issue. Windows Task Manager proves it is the processes AdobeCollabSync.exe and/or AcroCEF.exe that is/are keeping a handle on the file even after after it has been closed in Acrobat. Only ending these processes in Task Manager releases the lock on the PDF file and allows external software to delete/rewrite the PDF file. Please fix this amateur file handling issue and allow me to use Acrobat as a professional tool without it constantly spoiling my workflow!
