I have a bunch of records that exist on my sharepoint site that have somehow become records without being checked out to a user....

Any idea how that could be possible? I was under the impression that once something is declared a record that it is ultimately checked out by the "System Account"...

It appears as though this issue was caused by our bulk uploader product that we had purchased. I was able to use the method here to unlock the records.
