Sharepoint 2007 - No Option to Checkout Files.

I am having an issue with Sharepoint 2007 where users do not have the option to upload/checkout documents. I recently moved data centers and had to shut down the sharepoint server for several hours. Turned it back on and everything looked fine except that not even an administrator can edit files any more. I tried in IE/Firefox/Chrome and I get nothing.
There used to be an option to edit this file in MS Word http://i.imgur.com/nzug2ui.png 

There is no site lock from what I can see
stsadm -o getsitelock -url http://****:****

Did you check in the SQL server side if any of the Db's are set it to read only mode?

Check in the central admin  -> Quota and locks  -> If the site has been put in read only mode.

Check for any failed backup job, that can also cause this issue.

Database was not in read only mode.

Site was not set to read only mode.

This might be the problem that caused it. Any idea on how to check if backup job failed? And if so, how do I fix?

What sort of backups you are running? SQL or SharePoint backups?

Did you test if this issue is a global issue ie., affecting all site collections (or) all web applications (or) specific to one site collection?
