I am in the process of cleaning up file references and custom properties on all of our files before checking them into the vault. To verify that there are no missing references, I start a check-in so that the check-in dialog is displayed. If all is well, I then cancel the dialog, since I have other clean-up work to do before checking the files in. If there are reference problems, I correct them and then repeat the check-in until all issues have been resolved.
Today, I started seeing this error message
on a handful of files. These file exist only on my hard drive. No other user has access to them. I have closed all open applications, checked the task manager for 'hidden' instances of SW, Word, Excel, Acrobat, eDrawings, etc to make sure nothing is inadvertently holding these files. I have logged off and logged back in, making sure to open no applications other than Windows Explorer to attempt a check-in, but the error is still there.
Has anyone else seen this? If so, is there an explanation and/or solution to this problem?
