Whenever I try to delete a .dxf file that was previously opened in Illustrator, I always get the error "The action can't be completed because the file is opened in Adobe Illustrator 2021".  Any other file deletes just fine.  This only happens with .dxf files. The only way to get them to delete is to close Illustrator.  I didn't have this issue prior to the 25.2 update.  Anyone else have this problem?  I am using a Windows pc.

Anyone? Coworkers updated and are now having the same problem. No solutions?

When I try to move it, I get the same message and it won't let me move it.  The only way I can get it to delete is to colse and re-open Illustrator.

So far, the only thing that I have found to work, which by chance also fixed an issue I was having with a script I previously ran, was to roll back to version 25.0.1  I will stay here until tthe bugs are worked out.
