Locked XML file

Our company utilizes Vault for all our Inventor models and 2D Cad files with the exeption of the intelligent P&ID files which we can now successfully check in/out files through P&ID using the Vault toolbar (essetially rendering the project manager palatte obsolete) 


However in testing and trying different methods to make P&ID work with Vault we copied the entire test project data (xml files etc) into a folder in Vault of the same name and proceeded to check all the files out to the local working directory which didn't work.


After deleting the copied files out of Vault as well as my local working directory, we can't open the project from it's original location. Keeps telling me it's locked by another user which definitly isn't the case.


Have even tried to create a new project using the old xml file, however still get the same problem.


Alot of customization has been done within this project and would really like to retain all my work.
