Undo checkout not working

I had a melt down on my machine and had to delete the vault view and some files were checked out on the machine.

When I attempt to "Undo Check Out" PDMWorks informs me that the file is checked out on another machine. PDMWorks is wrong, refer attached pic.

Note I am logged in as Admin and on SOLID-M90 yet I can no longer "Undo Check Out". I have tried to log on to another machine with various log ins including Admin to "Undo Check Out" with no success.

The only way around this that I have found is to copy the files to another location, delete the files in the vault view and then copy them back and check them in again. This however removes the history and versions, which has huge implications for the usefulness of PDMWorks Enterprise.

Is there something I'm missing here, is there anyway to force an "Undo Check Out"?
