Can't delete content type, content type still in use

  Asked By: Aquake    Date: Apr 25    Category: Sharepoint 2010    Views: 13773


I get the error "content type is still in use" when i try to delete the content type "Bench".
I emptied my recycle bin and checked with Sharepoint Manager and the content type has no usage.

Here is the stacktrace of the error:

[SPException: The content type is in use.]
Microsoft.SharePoint.SPContentTypeCollection.DeleteFromWeb(SPContentTypeId id, String strName) +648
Microsoft.SharePoint.SPContentTypeCollection.Delete(SPContentTypeId id) +26449204
Microsoft.SharePoint.SPContentType.Delete() +85
Microsoft.SharePoint.ApplicationPages.ManageContentTypePage.DeleteContentType() +145
System.Web.UI.Page.RaisePostBackEvent(IPostBackEventHandler sourceControl, String eventArgument) +29
System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint) +2981

I took some screenshots to make it clear
