The built in version handling was deprecated long ago for exactly these
problems. Which Zope version are you using?

- back up your Data.fs(s)
- export your structure as it is (better do this per root element)
- undo your last steps (this is optional in case you cannot see
   important parts due to version lock) and export these objects
   as well

- stop zope/zeo and delete Data.fs(s), restart it and
   create your site again using your above exports.

- do not use zope versions anymore.

if your zope is old, try to upgrade while you are working
on it. In this case, you can skip step 4.
