I've just finished a job with several .xml files and after cleaning the files it seems like the unclean files also are cleaned. Has anyone experienced this and is there anything to do about it?

1) You cleaned them by accident
2) You're working in Word and have hidden text set not to be shown under tools/settings

I use WordFast instead of Trados but I've had this happen when the original files were read only.

The "cure" is to unprotect them (right click, properties, clear Read Only,OK) and then re-translate them using the TM.
