close locked open files RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I am running sharepoint 2007 server aka MOSS.

    Sometimes users closes their documents or the excel document crashes but it still stays open under file server

    i.e windows 2003 file server 


    When the user re-opens the file, then the  user can only open it as a read only.


    I use the Computer Management on the Windows File Server and search for the open files that is still open after the excel crash and then I have to close it manually.


    I had the similar situation the sharepoint (documen library) today. I didn't know how to close the locked open files.

  • Ben,


    You provided me with a very good document. The problem is that we can't not have 10 minutes downtime,


    To work around this behavior, wait 10 minutes before you click Edit in ProgramName to open the document again."
