not able to delete eclipsed item (files) in clear case: sudden crash of system made file corrupt

I was working on clear case dynamic view and suddenly my system got crashed. after that i was not able to open the file on which i was working. It was looking like eclipsed item on clear case explorer.

I was also not able to delete this file. But finally i got the solution to delete the file.

Here is one thing i want to say before trying my way just try to delete the eclipsed file using following links:

if you tried every thing still not able to delete. then here is the way to do it:
(this will not recover your work, if you forgot to check in.)
1. check in every file (except eclipsed one as you will not be able to do so.)
1. delete view shortcut.
2. reconfigure it.

if its still not working then:
1. create new view with same config spec
2. create shortcut for it.

Above described method should be used at last after you have tried every thing else.
