How to release locked files? Folder with "file locks" is missing in database

Hello everyone,

during synchronization we now and then received reports about locked files.
Until now we have released these locked files in the database in the folder “file_locks”. However, this folder no longer exists.

I hope someone has an idea where the folder could be hidden, or how we can now release locked files (without using additional tools)?

Maybe it´s a temporary nextcloud problem. Until yesterday the folder with “deleted files” was also missing and today it´s back.

Thank you very much!

Kind Regards,

there is a locking table in the database, and normally, you can empty this table (not sure what file you are deleting). However, the locks should not happen permanently, if that is the case, there might be something wrong in your setup (on larger setups, please try to use redis if possible):
