> Thanks Jerzy. I am sorry for my late reply as I was in a long vaction of Chinese New Year. I did try your recommendation, but I still experienced the problem for particular file. This happened the most when I tried to open the file direcly from Outlook e-mail attached Word file.
What happened is simple - Word opened both templates before it could open the damaged document. For some reasons some changes were applied to both templates (what should not be the case, as usually one is not supposed to change anything in these templates), so Word restored the changes and then asked for saving them.
> In light of this, I wonder if I should remove both templates in the startup folder and replace them with a new one from Trados program folders. My reason of doing this is that the old templates might have been changed and saved with changes before. If I replace the existing ones with the original, unchanged ones, and then make them Read-Only, this will guarantee that both will remain intact no matter what happened.
To mark both templates als read-only go to file explorer, select the templates one by one, press the right mouse button, select "Properties" and check the box for read-only access. Confirm the change.
