Hello All,

The situation has finally been resolved! Thank you all for your help. For some 
reason, doing a forced check-in didn't move files out of the Attic. However, we 
did finally work with the admins of the server the repository is located on, 
and they moved the problem files from the Attic subdirectory to where they 
should be. All files now check out as expected.

Thank you again!
