Hi. After having to do a reinstall of Windows 10 (apparently after a Windows upgrade), I have reinstalled MemoQ 2015 and have restored my Memoq projects that I had backup on an external hard drive (manually and with File History), but cannot find the associated TMs to those projects. The TM ribbon is empty for any given project.
I have tried using the Import From TMX/CSV button, but there doesn't seem to be any TM in the back-up memoq project files. I assume they are somewhere, but how do I get to them? any help is greatly appreciated.

Run a search on Windows? Jan 24, 2017

I couldn't find the file extension for memoQ translation memories. But I guess that you can search for files having this extension using the search box in the start menu of windows. Then you can extract the path for these files.

11. Thou shalt make backup copies of thine translation memories in TMX format and upload them to the cloud.
Thou canst indeed re-create thine translation memories from project files, but pain shalt thou suffer in the process...

TMX files found Jan 25, 2017

Thank you Elif for your search reminder. I found the TMX files on my backup external hard drive in a different place than the memoq project files. I am now importing those files back into memoQ, however, the import function says the import wwas performed successfully, but I can't see it in the translation memories pane. Something else to try to figure out today

Thank you Piotr for that crucial reminder to make backup files, which I did, but just couldn't find them or import them properly.
