If your clients regularly leave shared files open on your 'server', it would be nice to close them all, when needed.
In tip 0678 » The NET FILE command, you learned how to close them one at a time.
NOTE: The NET FILES command only effects files opened from SMB (Server Message Block) clients. Files opened via HTTP, FTP, IPC or RPC are NOT affected. If a client was editing a shared file, closing it will loose the unsaved edits. The Server service must be running for NET FILE to function.
To close all open shared files, run CloseAll.bat, which contains:
@echo off for /f "Skip=4 tokens=1" %%i in ('NET FILES') do if not "%%i" EQU "The" NET FILE %%i /CLOSE :end
