Deleting files issues

Dragging files over wi fi and deleting them using OS Catalina

Issues each time the files are moved say 10 at a time, besides a massive reduced speed issues now.

The files say one cannot be deleted as they are in use apparently.
Reason to delete is I have copied them from WD to the same WD using drag and drop.

Any ideas ?

I know how “easy” drag & drop is, but sometimes it is better to use the native commands on the device…in this case Linux on the MyCloud…learn some basic commands…
OpenTerminal app:
cd /shares/Public/old_directory (or where ever the files you want to move are located)
mv *.jpg /shares/Public/new_directory (mv = move *.jpg = all jpgs)
