I have more information regarding locked files in SharePoint, these have been commonly read posts.

 This is from Ian Morrish’s blog, you should all have it in your feed anyway..

He discusses the traps and tricks for Check in and Check out, but it also has this detail on locking time outs for files

Lock File Timeout

This is interesting and something to beware of when rolling out to different Operating Systems. I wonder how these timeout can be changed esp the Vista one as it seem a little long. Let me know if you find out where…..

Go and read his good post http://www.wssdemo.com/Blog/archive/2008/11/03/.aspx

File Locked by another using MOSS user pt 2

I had put in a log entry for this a while ago but

  • It was for 2003
  • And it didnt work for me in this situation.

The situation was when I tried to edit a specific document I got the message box that another user had it opened for editing, no matter what I did even deleteing it and re-uploading it I still got the message.

What ended up working was simply to Check it out change something then check it back in and close and from then on it was fine!

Go figure maybe the check in/out removed some locking file?
