The "uncleaned" files are really the working files May 14, 2015

"uncleaned files" are really a remnant from Trados. It is only referring to the bilingual project files that you work in in the old Trados. If the customer asks for an "uncleaned" file, either they refer to the old Trados style file (for instance from Tag Editor) or just mean the sdlxliff file that Studio is producing.

So you don't save anything to create an uncleaned file (and you didn't do that in Trados either, for that matter).

You are not referring to a cleaned file? If you do, then open the Files view, right click the file in question, choose Batch Tasks > Export files

It depends on what you received from the customer May 14, 2015

If you only received a Word file for instance, you probably will have to ask the client, in case it for instance is a ttx file he wants and not an sdlxliff file. But xliff files are the standard in the translation industry these days, so normally you would return an xliff file (sdlxliff if it's from Studio, or for instance xlf if it's from some other CAT tool - basically it's the same file format regardless of the extension).
