how to copy locked files ( Device or resource busy error) on windows xp without admin permissions

Is there is any way I can copy locked files on windows xp machine without having admin rights? I used unloker tool its great but needs admin rights to install and run. how it could be done in some programming language like perl/shell/c c++ etc. or if there exists some workaround for this.

You could try Hobocopy. It uses the volume shadowing service to create a "snapshot" and then copies that snapshot. Because HoboCopy copies from a VSS snapshot, it is able copy even files that are in locked by some other program.
