Hello there,

I had a nagging clean up problem: clean up failed with an error message (details are described here).

After investigating various possible causes, Dropbox appears be the problem.
The TTX file to clean and the corresponding source XLS are in a subfolder of the Dropbox folder.
When I took this subfolder out of the Dropbox folder, I could clean the file fine.
On the other hand, when the subfolder is in the Dropbox folder, then clean fails even if I suspend synchronization or even exit the Dropbox application.

I'd be interested to know if you use Dropbox and manage to clean TTX files made from XLS files with Workbench (Trados 2007) in the Dropbox folder, or for if you can shed any other light on this issue.

Thank you.
