This library is being used by someone else. Try opening it again later

Hi,

 

I am getting this message (This library is being used by someone else. Try opening it again later) , although the library is not being used by someone else...

 

 

What can I do?

I assume you have rebooted the machine.  sometimes if you have tried to email from the library this can happen, as the mail program locks a file.  Rebooting usually helps.  

 

Another thing to try is to carefully copy both the .enl file and the .DATA folder together to a new folder location and try to open it from there.  This sometimes "unlocks" the library.
