is there a way to simulate a redo-log or datafile failure in windows ?

I was trying to delete the file manually but it errors out saying :
'This process cannot access the file because its currently in use by another process'.



Any workarounds to this ?

shutdown oracle before removing file.

After all these days,
still no Oracle version, no CODE tags.

One of the methods.

Edit:
Above URL will do talk about that in Unix.
Concept is same. There might be some windows nuances to consider.

No.
I think you didnt get my question.

Also its oracle 9i on windows XP / 2000

-
When I try to delete the actual redo file in windows it says :

using command :

prompt> delete c:/oracle/redo01.log
'This process cannot access the file because its currently in use by another process'.


So my question is how this can be done in windows if another process (here oracle) is using it. ??

Remove the disk.

I got your question.
You are not getting what we are saying.
I was addressing this
>>is there a way to simulate a redo-log or datafile failure in windows ?
