One possibility is that the folder or a file inside the folder is still open,
by some process on the machine.

Go search the web and find Microsoft's "System Internals Process Explorer"
tool, and download and learn how to use it, and then use it to examine
the state of your system after you think Derby is shut down, and see if
you can find a process which has an open handle to a file in that folder.
