I have a serious problem. I received an 11 MB file through X-Drive for translation, and now that I want to send it back to the client, X-drive looks for the file inside X-drive and not in the computer.

Please give me a dummy-proof explanation of what I have to do to solve this problem, step by step.

Thank you so much.

It depends on a number of factors. Aug 11, 2005

X-drive looks for the file inside X-drive and not in the computer.

X-drive doesn't really "look" anywhere; it is merely a storage spot, such as your local drive C, only it's on the Web.

How you edited the file in the first place is the key. You can edit some files directly there, or, you copy them to your computer, edit, and send them back. Further, the type of account you have determines the tools you have available for check-out check-in, and they offer different tools for downloading and management. You can even map a drive letter (like X:) to the X-drive data.

The point is that you will need to elaborate quite a bit on just what happened and what is happening. X-Drive has a very nice user guide, both as PDF and as HTML.
