How to remove check out on another machine

I have an issue with Autodesk Vault 2012.

I have a number of files checked out to myself on an old machine that no longer exists as it had major faults with the hard drive.

I have tried remove reservation without any luck, I have also logged in as another Adminstrator without any luck.

 

The file when I look at it in the Vault explorer shows with a tick but no local copy, I need to be able to get the local copy and r remove the reservation.

 

Any ideas?

When you try to remove the reservation while logged in as a user with the Administrator role, what error do you see?

Does anything get logged in the server's vlog?

Hi,

 

I get the message that I cannot remove the reservation because it is not currently checked out to anyone else.

I assume I get this message because it believes the files are checked out to 'me' but on a different machine
