I do not work generally with sdlx but one client wanted me to use it.
The 2 first time i didnt have any problem then onb the third one each time i tried to use it, the TM vas locked by a .ldb even though i am the only user of it on my PC

The .ldb file extension is used by the Microsoft Access database application to prevent files from being edited by two people at the same time. If a file is open by more than one user on a multi-user database and both users try to make changes to the file at the same time, it could result in a corruption of the file and a loss of data. The LDB file prevents this from happening by locking the file when one user already has it open.

Later on, i align a bilingual file. It worked but when i try to export it to a TM a .ldb appears. and the export did not succeed.

The .ldb desappears when i close SDLX

What could i do so it will not appear again.
