Hi Team,

 

I have synced the teams folder to my local drive. I am able to see the files from Teams on local as well any thing created newly in local synced on teams. I am able to open the files on Teams/ SharePoint and able to see the file in edit mode. But when i open the file in local - it always shows the file as Read only . There is no one working on the file also. Why does this problem occur. Any immediate assistance will help.

@karthick2365 I had this problem and what i had to do to fix it was to check-out the file in teams. Even though i never had to do that before... but checking-out the file solved the issue.
