Hey Bob, not really sure but there are a few different types of "file locks" possible in OSX. (First off, I'm assuming you see that the file is "locked" when you do a file info in the finder.) By using uchg, you're modifying (or trying to remove) the user flag that "locks" the file from modification. There's also schg (system flag) that you can try to remove. So you could try:

sudo chflags -R noschg /volume/foldername

And if you use ls - lO (that's lowercase "L" and capital "O") in a directory with some locks present, you can see a listing of what flags are set -- that can give you an idea of which flags you need to remove.

By checking the man page for chflags (man chflags), it should show you the other types of flags that exist so you can figure out what needs to be removed.

Let me know if that helps or hurts, and good luck.

Dave
