progeCAD can not lock drawings. Locking must be happening through the permissions you have set on the folder or the file. Is the drawing on a network server that you are getting this error? We recommend you always copy the file locally before working on your drawings. If the file is local to your machine (ie. on your hard drive), have you tried doing a search across your drives for the same file with a dwg extension? Did you select where you wanted the drawing to be saved? Could it be that you thought you saved it somewhere but it may be located in a different folder?
