Locked files and Mac OS X
Authored by: acampbell on May 04, '09 01:49:09PM

Files get locked that I never locked, so it has been frustrating. The easiest why I have found (at least with photos, not sure if it applies to all files) is to view it through Adobe Bridge. Select all and right click. If just one of the selected files is locked you'll get an option to "unlock all", if no files are locked that option will not be available.

Hope this helps. If anyone knows how to prevent these files (usually happens with files being shared through a shared folder) from locking please advise.
