|Hi All -
I have posted about this previously, however I am still getting a variety of locked files and I'm pretty sure that none of the users are in the document still. The file shows up as ~lock filename.
Is there anyone who can tell me, any history about OpenOffice locked files, common reasons for locked files, any relevant information whatsoever in regards to potential solutions, different things we can try to fix this, or changes in how we open and close files. Is there anyone else who has had similar issues?
The locked files we are noticing are locked on the server, we store most of our files on the server so they wouldnt be saved locally on the pc.
What is the best recommendation to deal with locked files and prevent them from locking in the future?
Any recommendations and feedback is greatly appreciated. We are using OOO 3.1 or greater in most cases. Would upgrading to 3.2.1 or newer impact this at all or not really?
