I have been touting memoq's stability, but this may shake my faith:

I was working on a project and entered an undo command when the project crashed. I tried to reopen it -- no luck. I tried deleting the project registry file. Still nothing. I tried reopening the files in another project, realizing that the data I really need is in the TM and the term base. When I went to add those to the new project, they were listed as unavailable.

The error message indicates that another application is accessing the file, but memoq is the only program I know of that would do that.

Any suggestions?

Hi Eric,

Hope you can find a solution, or memoQ support can fix it. Try Unlocker, a small free program to check which program is accessing your files. Then you can either "kill" that application or "unlock".

I understand why TM, TB and project files are crypted by some CAT developers, for faster access, smaller size, etc. But when such problems occur you lose everything (backups?).

CafeTran simply uses TMX files, no need to store them as TMs. No need for file conversion, easy to use, easy to edit even with text editors.

Deja Vu X TM, TB and project files can be opened and edited with MS Access (or Libre/OpenOffice). I feel safe.

Well, memoQ? No solution it seems, https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/memoQ/conversations/topics/21411

Selcuk

Thanks for the reply. I was about to restart the computer to see if that would work when I tried opening the project one more time, and it opened. No idea what changed.
