Before you do this workflow check to see that you have Bin Sharing turned on

AVID - Bin Sharing on Non Avid Storage


Support Center

Bins are locked even though no other client is sharing that project

Shown here there is a RED lock on the locked bin on the left not GREEN like

the one on the right.


If a shared project can be opened, but the bins are locked, and this project is not currently being accessed by another

client in the Unity Environment, then in all likelihood there is corruption in the shared project folder.

Look for an Avid Bin file which ends in ".lck" ( for lock ).

If you find one, and you are sure that no other client system is "owning" that shared project, then trash that ".lck" file and try to open the project again.

The lock icon on the bins should be gone and read/write access should once again be available.




Go to the AVID Project Folder to find .lck files


Open the AVID Project folder and look for a files with .lck extension and delete them.

REMEMBER if AVID is open all open bins will have a .lck so make sure AVID is not open.



Reopen AVID and all the bins should be green and unlocked
