    Ok, now today I just realized that there are 2 different types of metal boxes, and strong boxes. (Those little gold boxes.) Both have ones that will hold 125 items and weigh 1 stone when empty. BUT, there are certain ones that will only hold 25 items and those weigh 100 stones when empty. Well, I just emptied the one I had that only held 25 items and released it so I could replace it with one that holds 125 items, but now that it's empty and not locked down, it cannot be picked up! I tried to pick it up to put in my backpack, but it just won't be picked up. It's not locked down, it's empty, my backpack is not full and I have pleanty of strength to carry it. Guess I'll have to just wait to see if it degrades. Weird glitch, or is this a common thing with those metal boxes and strong boxes that only hold 25 items?

    I still can't pick it up. It still says it will only hold 25 items.

    These 25 item boxes were originally created using the "Place Strongbox" command which basically let co-owners place their own little storage box. I suspect there is still some leftover code which recognizes these boxes as such and this is probably what you are running up against.

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I tried everything, but no go. So I just let it degrade and placed a new one that has a 125 item capacity.
