I have a table component which contains a file representations, which have associated inputstreams. I want to be able to drag a selection of files from this component to the desktop. But when I use the below code, windows informs me that: "Cannot move file, it is being used by another person or program. Close any programs that maybe be using this file and try again".

Yes, it's that code which is the guilty party. Close the FileOutputStream after you finish writing to it.
