Access is denied
Thread poster: xxxVadney
Earlier today I was happily working on a document with a TM. I shut down my computer and later went back to work on the file. When I tried to open the TM again, I got the error message " Access is denied" followed by the path to the TM.
I need to use that TM to get a job out. Has anyone ever experienced this bizarre behavior before. Is the a fix?
Thanks very much!

I have experienced that a few times. Usually it happens when the computer crashes for some reason. From my own experience, that memory would be no longer usable and I need to recreate a new one and use the last exported memory. This would imply loosing the memory segments created in-between (after exporting and before the crash). So I would need to clean-up the files that correspond to that "in-between" period.
If there is anyone out there that knows a better solution, I really look forward to hear it. May be Ralf Lemster can help since he knows a lot about Trados and has helped me a few times too.

...but it's pretty difficult to find the reason without more info (particularly the operating system used). I suspect this is more likely to be caused by the OS (IOW the OS might be 'thinking' that the TM files are still used by another process).
If re-starting the computer doesn't solve it, you may want to try (i) creating a copy of the files (possibly renaming them slightly) or (ii) creating a copy of the .tmw file only. After opening this, you will need to re-organise the TM (as the four index files will not be available).
