    Selections 'Locked' in media tool and cant delete?



    I am going through a bunch of my edit workstations in edit suite and cleaning out the systems and media files.

    I am using my normal workflow to do this-  I open a project, populate all files in all drives in the media tool and then delete all for the projects i am done with.

    For some reason for the first time I have ever seen, on 3 machines, I have done this and i get the message:

    "Some selections were locked and could not be removed"

    and the only option available is OK, which then exits me out of the system, and I get NO files deleted.


    Why is this happening?  

    What has changed? 

    How do I proceed past so I can clean up my systems?

    Thanks for all help.

    It may be that someone has locked the items in the bin. This might help:
