FrontPage Guru's - Help Needed
Working okay but now can't check out files

Our tech put in a virtual directory so that we could FTP into the website
files (not necesarily using FP).

Front page created a _derived folder and now we can not check out files nor
save files.

1st error message says "cannot copy file C:\myfolder\myfile.html to

Then it says for error 2 - "Server Error: file C:\myfolder\myfile.html is
not checked out"

What do we need to set to correct this?

The first person I'd talk to is the guy that set it up, but you've probably done that. FP users, any ideas?

Unfortunately, the person that set it up is no longer here. We have freed up some of the issues, but have encountered others.

I have noted in other discussions that over a certain amount of files handled by Frontpage causes it to slow or become inoperable because of the size of the site files.

Our web has over 4000 pages, (about 1/3 archive files). We have access to FrontPage again, however, trying to check out the site files causes a file to be generated by FrontPage with the .LCK (locking) extension. We then cannot author or edit the site files.

I am thinking that this is caused by source control. Are there settings that I may be missing (obviously I'm missing something)that is a common thing to check in this instance?
