Files Locked for Editing RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a SharePoint 2010 farm and we're having recurring instances of people trying to open a file in SharePoint but get the message the File is locked for editing. I have a PowerShell script that can unlock the file, but what I need to find out is why the file is not getting released on its own.  I know office locks the file and releases it after 10 minutes, but that doesn't seem to be happening.

    Does anybody have any insight as to why this keeps happening?  Users are using Office 2010 as well.
