In the same essence as this question Excel file locked for editing. Is there a command I can type to remove the lock flag? for example:
attrib -R example.docx
-- The story --
In our office we share docx and xlsx via a NAS server. Am the person assigned who goes through these documents and have them 'processed'. Other team members should only be reading the file. Sometimes asking them to close the document would release the lock but in some cases it won't, either network problem or software problem. It's quite annoying, as I'd have to open the word doc, save it as a new copy, open the NAS control panel and delete the old file, then rename the duplicated copy...
