Hello Experts

complete this operation, please contact your administrator.
I tried to go into manage content and structure and tried to discard check out and it still shows checked out to the user.Also tried to go to sharepoint site and tried to undo check out from sharepoint designer still same message.
Please help. why would it not be able to check back in or discard check out.

It sounds like you don't have the correct permissions to do so.  Are you a site collection admin?

Under Modify Site Settings--Site collection administrators--I can see my name there.

Also when I click Discard check out, the message warning saying " are you sure you want to discard check out doesn't pop up" either. Not sure whats going on here.

Thanks for your time.

I see errors on db serevr for transaction log to be full. I think thats why its causing this problem. Do you know how I can truncate the logs?
Thanks for your help and time.
