A user was working on a document when it crashed.
 
The user does not have the document open. However, now receives the following message when attempting to open the document: "The file is currently checked out or locked for editing by another user."
 
How do I Discard check out if the option is not available in SharePoint? Can I terminate the connection from the server?

Go to"Document library settings --> Manage files which have no checked in version"

On the resulting page you should find the file and the file should checked out to the user. Clear the file.

Wow, if this works you're a genius. Unfortuntely I have to wait until it happens again as we deleted the document and uploaded it again to get round it.
