Cannot create/shadow copy when file already exists

Error : Cannot create/shadow copy '..........' when that file already exists.

Solution : Rebuild solution / Clean solution, then rebuild.

Don't know why this actually happens. But it happens often, after building solution without debugging for times.


  1. Occurred on a production server that was operating fine. Then this with no known changes.

  2. If you meet this problem while deploying, then the solution is restarting the IIS.
