The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

I've had an Alteryx workflow scheduled with the scheduler for a long time now. Recently, I've been getting the same error each night when trying to write out.

"The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process."

 

- The file I'm trying to output is a qvx.

- I find it hard to believe someone would have this file open since limited users have access to Alteryx.

- The file is written to a shared drive.

- My workflow is linear, so using a block tool is not the issue here.

 

I'm not sure what else to do besides rename the file, which did successfully output, but it would just be tedious to then fix it in the scheduler and all documentation.

 

Thanks for any help!

I went through this issue when inputting file into a workflow but it was because i had the file opened in another application, so just make sure the file is only opened in Alteryx.
