You are going to have to be a little more specific on what you mean by "Ready for Copying Data".

We have to check with "Ready for copying data". It means that these directory and sub directories are not used in other programs. These directory and sub directories are put it in a share folder.

What programs are accessing the data in log1 and log2?
You can forcefully kill the processes that are using the files in log1 and log2, but the files may then be corrupted.

You aren't supplying enough details about the task.
