Today, when I try to open Concordance in Workbench, I receive the error message "The system cannot find the file specified".

But the file is located on D drive on my internal HDD, and it was possible to use Concordance searches from there yesterday. So why can't the TM be located now, even though it is there (I double-checked: it is on exactly the same location as yesterday)?

Sometimes it works, sometimes not. There is no pattern: sometimes I can search Concordance and I get results, sometimes I get this error message that the TM can not be located.

For example, now I searched a term and received the error messate that the TM can not be found. Immediately afterwards, I entered the letter "d" and received several results from the TM without any error message. Then I searched again, and results from the TM were displayed whereas in the Workbench interface furthest down I receive this error message on a dark red background. In Concordance interface, it says Ready. furthest down, also on a dark red background.

Mustn't there be something wrong with the translation memory?
