Cannot package file for printing while files "are locked"

Indesign won't package my book, saying "Cannot save a copy of "FileName" and then "FileName" is locked and cannot be added to book file!"

I did nothing since last packaging, but noticed once, when I was saving files (or the entire book?) some message related to "cloud document" appeared - I didn't pay attention, but maybe I pushed some button wrong occasionally...

How can I correct it? PDF file is being generated without problems, only Packaging for print doesn't work.

 

Thanks in advance for your help

Of course I checked it, they are still on my local drive. But I think I have found the reason - there was simply not enough space on the local drive to copy files to the package. Once I freed some disk space, the problem disappeared. Anyway, thanks for your answer.

What might happen if you made sure all your documents were stored locally on your hard drive instead of on the cloud?
