File in Use by Another User when Clearing Trash?

I have a lot of claims in the trash bin from a long time ago. When I try to empty the trash a screen comes up on each on that someone else is using the file and it can't be deleted from the trash. My guess is they are all ghosts from crashes and issues in years past. How can I get rid of these trash items?

    Thank you for contacting Simsol Support. You most likely will need to run through a few utilities to correct this issue.

    In your case, I'd like you to run through both the Delete Lock and Net Utility and the DBCleanUp utilities. This video will show you how to run both processes:

    Please be sure Simsol and any Simsol related processes are closed prior to running these utilities. If you are uncomfortable running these utilities or if you should complete both and your issue is not resolved, please call our offices at 1.800.447.4676 x500 for more assistance.

    Kind Regards,
    Chelsea Balderson
    Director of Support

    The DB Cleanup appears to have done the trick. 

    Thank you,
