Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You install Internet Information Services (IIS) 8.0 on a computer that is running Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012.

  • You create an FTP site by using IIS 8.0.

  • You upload files to the FTP site by using the Ftp.exe utility.

  • You run the following command to monitor the upload progress of the files:
    ftp> literal size file name

In this scenario, the command does not return the current size of the file as expected. Additionally, you receive the following error message:

550-The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.
Win32 error: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.
Error details: File system returned an error.

Cause

This issue occurs because of a sharing violation that occurs when you use the literal size command to query the current size of a file that is already open with write access.
