Repair / File Locks tab

Alerts and notices

This tab is used to clear file locks that restrict access to a specific user, embedded object, screen, checked out drawers, or file locks that prevent a user from starting FileCabinet CS.

To open this tab, choose Help > Repair and click the File Locks tab.

After clicking the appropriate option, highlight the user, embedded object, checked out drawer, or screen for which you want to delete an associated lock and click the Delete Lock button.


  • Depending on your security configuration, you may be required to enter the master password and click OK before you can open the Repair dialog.
  • When you are viewing FileCabinet CS documents from within other CS Professional Suite applications, a user lock is created even if FileCabinet CS is not currently running on your machine.
