An error occurred while trying to begin a transaction

Can you please help us to investigate this error?
The Vault Server seems to affect only a group of users working on the same project. This error had occured since last week. But is now systematic. Thank you very in advance for your help.

It seems that the cause is a shared folder which went out of sync. For now I have undone all checked out files and deleted the shared folder. That seems to solve the issue. We'll keep you posted.

If you can help explain how a shared folder could go out of sync, I would be very interested.

Thanks in advance.

In what way was the shared folder out of sync?

Was the shared folder shared more than one time, and if so, which share link did you delete?
