Sure
Start/Program Files/Administrative Tools/Computer Management

Under Sytem Tools, Click Shared Folders and then click Open Files.

Here you will the file being accessed, by who, locks if any and the mode in which it is accessed. Right clicking will give you the ability to close all open files, selecting file/s and right clicking will give you the abilitiy to close the file/s selected.

    Humblenetadmin is correct. If you are a sysadmin and need to do this for numerous servers, I would suggest you invest in Hyena. You can get all the information easily.
