FTP/IIS Error: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

In IIS 7.5 When trying to get current log files using CMD FTP client it gives error

550 error: "The file cannot be accessed because it is in use by another process"

Checked processes using procmon and found that FTP was the only thing accessing it. Port 21 isn't being used by anything else either.

and this http://forums.iis.net/p/1173143/2043423.aspx/1?Re+FTP+7+5+550+Error

are the same issue I am having. I have tried all the suggested fixes (Stopping services / process and restarting, creating user, giving user full rights to nfsw & FTP site, and allowing read file while uploading)

It seems something is locking the file and won't let me access it via FTP.

Any help would be appreciated.
