Dear Colleagues,

After working all day on a document in Studio 2009 I find that I am unable to confirm segments or save the file. When I try to confirm segments I get this error message:

"The translation memory or TM container appears to be missing and may have been deleted"

and when I try to save the file I get this error message:

"Could not find file C:\Users\...\AppData\Local\Temp\ancunxtk.flh\hujgzvcb.ggn.ttx"

The original document was a ttx file, but if I try to save it either in original file format or as a ttx document I get this error message:

"Failed to save target content: missing dependency: the original source file"

Note that the original source and ttx files are in the folder they have always been while I have been working on this project.

Normally I confirm segments as I go along, but this is an extremely difficult project which I knew I was going to want to revise substantially before finally confirming the segments. I knew I should be able to save the document at any point, so I wasn't worried about not confirming the segments.

I suspect closing the document and restarting Studio will solve the issue, but the problem is that because I cannot save the document or confirm the segments I will lose most of today's work (I've cut and pasted it into a Word document if all else fails, but I assume it won't be quite so easy to paste it back into Studio so I would rather avoid the need to do that if at all possible).

I have searched the forum for previous threads on this problem and there was one:

but the solutions suggested will not help in my situation as they mean closing Studio and in doing so I will lose most of today's work.

Any cures, workarounds, or suggestions for places to get further help (I don't have an SDL service agreement) gratefully received,
