SBS 2008 – Exchange SP3 Error DataCollectorSvc process has open files

We are applying Exchange 2007 Service Pack 3 on an SBS 2008 server and received the following error:

Exchange Server 2007 SP3 Setup

Error: Setup cannot continue with the upgrade because the ‘DataCollectorSvc' () process (ID: 1564) has open files. Close the process and restart Setup.

So, we brought up the Task Manager and opened Processes tab:

After right clicking on the DataCollectorSvc.exe and clicking on End Process we clicked the Retry button in the Exchange SP3 Setup.

We are good to go!

Just a little bit of extra info. The "DataCollectorSvc" service is AKA the "Windows SBS Manager" service.
