I just figured out how to rename an audio file that Cubase didn’t want to let me rename. I selected its event in the project window and did Bounce Selection. I was able to rename the bounced file, and the old file was now unused, so I was able to delete it.

This was in Cubase 10 Pro, but I imagine it would work in 9.5.

Steinberg should fix this.

You can temporary disable musical mode in the control bar to release realtime cache and allow Cubase rename the file.

This worked for me;

Start Cubase "As Administrator".
(Also, make sure that the "User Account Control" is not disabled but set to its default setting. )

Are you sure about that? Changing the user level wouldn't let a locked file be modified.
