My computer crashed this morning. Now my ttx-file doesn't open again in SDL Studuio 2011. I get following message:

"Unexpected error while trying to detect file type. Unexpected end of file has occured. The following elements are not closed: internal file, reference, header, title, xcliff. Line 3598 Pos 1"

Someone, who could help? I worked on this review with track changes already 3 days. It's a big file (around 25.000 words). Should deliver this work tomorrow, and doesn't have the time to start from new.

I tried to create a new project, but the TM is not updated although I saved my changes every 30 minutes

I also tried to close some files in Task manager, but unfortunatly I am unable to find the right one.

Thank you in advance!
