I am trying to clean up some Word documents that I translated about a month ago. I have Trados 2007.

I have opened up the Translators workbench as normal and have no other documents open at the same time. I have clicked on Tools, clean up, then add. I have added the three word documents that I want to clean, then pressed clean up.

It is getting all the way to 98% then giving the following error message which I have never seen before:

(32): The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

I do not have the folder open anywhere else so I am a bit stuck as to what to do. I have looked through the list of error reports and this one is not there. Can anyone help? Any suggestions much appreciated!

Thank you.

Hi Kate,

As a workaround, you could create a copy of your files and try to clean up the copies.
If you have used or emailed the files today, you could try to shut down the PC or close your email program.
