I get this error message when I want to export a file.

It worked before, I haven't changed my workflow, have been getting this message for the last 2 files.

What can I do?

Thanks in advance for advice!

Temp file deleted May 3, 2016


Unfortunately, it is a very commun error!

In my personal case, my antivirus used to erase the temp files linking the SDL file to the work file.

You can check for help this entry at the knowledge base.

I solved the issue setting Norton to no erase any temp file automatically, instead, I do it manually, but only when I closed and cleaned a translation project.

Hope it helps.

common error May 3, 2016

This type of error is very common. When the original file is too big, Studio removes it from the package. You just have to increase the file size accepted, or relink the xliff with its original file/content.
