I can no longer move one Folder into another

See this Dropbox Screenshot Click here It says that the contents are open in another program, even after I have rebooted the PC.

I am running Windows 10

Could it be a problem connected with your 'My Porn' folder? :)

Well spotted but I would doubt it

Murphy's Law being what it is, about 20 minutes ago, it cured itself.

However, I shall leave the thread open. Just in case someone knows what caused it.

As far as I can comprehend, my PC thought that Word and Access Files, that I had been working on, remained open even though I had closed them in the normal manner.

Even a couple of reboots of the PC were insufficient to persuade it that it was incorrect

It was not in process of doing the Monthly Win 10 MS updates as there were updates for MS Office programs

I installed the Updates last night.

When I tried to move the Folders, first thing this morning, nothing had changed.

However, just after 11.30, I tried again, and they transferred into their new homes with no problem

Oh woe is me!

It's back. Seemed to work OK for a while, then I tried to change the Title of one of the Folders and a pop-up said that I couldn't because a Folder or File is open, when there is nothing in that Folder that has been opened in ages

It's not got anything to do with any back-ups running, such as your NAS or other, has it? Might be worth checking.

I had a similar problem the other day with a USB pen drive which wouldn't eject as it was being used by 'another program'. Nothing else was running at the time [excel, word etc.].

I found out it was because of my NAS doing a scheduled back-up.

  wee eddie 09:45 16 Mar 2018

That's an idea. I've had problems with my back-up software lately. I shall turn off the NAS Drive and report back
