checked out documents refusing to be checked in RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I have two users who are unable to check their documents in. The 1st user had to rename their document and then  uploaded a new doc, the 2nd user still can't check in.  The error for the 2nd user is :

    This document was checked ouut to your local drafts folder but the local copy could not be checked in to the site. Close any application that is editing the document and try to check in again, or discard the checkout.

    There is no program editing the document, any views ? Should I ask the client to restart their workstation ? Can i as admin attempt check in ?

  • Hi i've looked at the link, the file your refering to is :

    File name File version File size Date Time Platform
