Studio 2011 - Update TM after Generate Target

I have a project with 60+ files in 5 languages, and I would like to add them to a new TM.
The files had already been saved as target in the past (Batch Task > Generate Target Translation). Created a new TM for each language, added the TMs to the languages in Project Settings, and when I go to Batch Tasks, Update Main Translation Memories is not available.
The only way to make them available for a TM update, seems to be by changing something in the file.

Opening 300+ files, changing something and saving again will take hours (some of the larger files take 10-15 seconds to open), and it is not really something I enjoy doing.

Put simply: how do I update a (new) TM with files of which the target files have already been generated (apart from importing the SDLXLIFF files into the TMs, which would also involve quite a few actions)?

This is in Studio 2011, but Studio 2014 seems to have the same problem.
