I need advices or help with a brainteaser!!!

Yesterday, I tried to use the tool "Upgrade Translation Memories" which allows to upgrade the translation
memories from SDLX 2007 and SDL Trados 2007 to SDL Trados Studio 2014.

--> 3 steps
1. export of the old TM --> OK
2. creation of the new TM --> OK
3. import of the old TM into the new TM --> ISSUE. My old TM contains around 180 000 units. The import process (step 3) was fine till 30 000 units more or less (importing of the units very fast). Then, the process slowed down a lot. For you to have an idea, I left the program working from 12AM to 10PM, when the result was only 50 000 units imported!

I started searching info on Internet. I tried to export the old TM into a TMX file and to import it directly into my current TM (.sdltm), using Trados Studio 2014 --> ISSUE again. I tried also to do an export of my old TM into a TXT and to import it into my current TM (.sdltm) --> ISSUE.

I really don't understand.

May the old TM be corrupt?

Why does Studio import well the first 30 000 units and then slow down dramatically?

Thanks by advance,

Florent Bousson
