Just do the "vi -r ..." like it suggests.

By the way, my /etc/weekly includes:

if checkyesno virecover && [ -x /usr/libexec/virecover ]; then
        echo ""
        echo "Report about vi(1) recovery files."

I'd like a way to only report on vi recovery files when vi is really not
editing them (in other words don't show the edited files if vi is still
running on it) . Anyone know?
