I would need urgent help ... I was working on a big project, and suddenly Trados closed and at the re-opening I get this message: "Unexpected error when detecting file type for file ......... ..sdlxliff. Unexpected: The following elements are not closed: internal-file, reference, header, file, xliff, line 3206, position ". How can I solve this problem? I'm afraid I won't able to go on with my project...
Thanks a lot!

Have you tried restarting Windows? Dec 5, 2018

Since Studio crashed it seems some files are still open. Restarting Windows should fix that. At least that's the first I would try.
