Locked Files

A file that is being used is locked. In the picture beneath, the user has opened the document (1) in Word. When a user is editing a Word Document, that file will remain locked while it is open in Word. Sometimes you will need to click the “Refresh” text (2) to see files that are locked in the Locked Files view. These are locked files from the local device. The locked files include automatically locked files (e.g., opened in Word) and manually locked files (e.g., right-clicked and locked in context menu). If you need to force-unlock a file, this should be possible utilizing the lock icon (3).
