I somehow got locked out of the teamwork file after taking a draft copy home and working on it. When opening the draft and signing in I get a message that a lock file has been corrupted and should be trashed. the lock file does not exist. It can't be found anywhere. What do I do? Do I trash the Admin file? How do I reconnect to my project. I have not signed out of the file at all.
I am using AC 7 and working on a Mac G4 667 powerbook.
The lock file is a file with an .lck extension. It must be placed near your admin file.
The best way that i have found in failure events is to save the draft copy as a solo project and then share it again as a Teamwork project. This will run except if other team members have been working on their own copy. In this case you will need to check every drawing.
We use Teamwork on 99.5% of the projects (+500 projects/year) in our office (77+/- licenses). We've stumbled across MANY bugs and unexplainable issues that no one else has experienced. I think this issue depends on how the file is being shared (layers/stories/marquee defined workspaces) and how many teammates are signed-in at the time.
