Reversing the import of a tmx/txt file

I found impossible to revert my TM to its previous state when I found that I had imported the wrong tmx file, thus messing everything up.

So, what is my "lesson learned"? You ALWAYS have to create a BACKUP file for your TM BEFORE trying to import ANYTHING to it.

Fortunately, I had saved a file I had exported several hours before messing it all up with the wrong import file, so I was able to create a new TM using that file, using the "translate" function with documents translated after the aforementioned export file was created and importing the correct file this time, thus getting everything back to normal with a little effort.

Well, I just wanted to share my experience with anyone facing the same situation... it pays to be careful, guys!
