Hi every one, i am new to trados 2015. It was working just well but yesterday i started having the following error message;
"The translation memory or TM container appears to be missing and may have been deleted". Can someone help?
I am afraid my antiviru might have deleted something.

Dear Guillaume

Thanks for your response. I am using the Trados 2015 Freelance edition. I have windows 7 and office 2007 installed and i am working on a heavy Excel file. I am no longer seeing the same error message today. This is the new error message i am seeing.

1-When opening Trados

2-When working on the Editing View

3-When trying to "Save Target As"

Thanks again for giving attention to my request for help

Best regards

Don’t use temporary folders Oct 16, 2015

I think your problem comes from this:

Most likely, you opened your Excel file by double-clicking on a file attachment in your e-mail, which caused it to be saved in a temporary folder. If you kept it there, this must have confused Trados.

Start over again, by saving the file attachment to a "proper" folder (eg. in your Documents), and importing it into your project.
