The Mac Drive also features explicit file locking and unlocking. Locked files can be identified on the drive by the lock icon against the file.
As with the Windows Drive if office files are launched directly from Mac Finder then they are auto-locked and auto-unlocked on exit.NOTE:
If a file remains locked it can be because:
- A User explicitly locks a file and forgets to unlock it.
- If a file is locked automatically using a desktop app such as Microsoft Word and the App crashes the file then remains locked until explicitly unlocked.
Also note a Cloud Administrator can unlock files (in addition to the users).Back to Wiki Index
