Every time I try to open a specific TM, I get the error message "Database corrupt! Run Export, create a new TM and import". The only problem is that, as I can't open the TM, I can't export it. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hi,
you might try the following:
1. Create a new subdirectory
2. In that subdirectory, create a new (empty) TM that has exactly the same name as the corrupt one.
3. Copy the TM system files (.iix, .mtf, .mdf, .mwv) to the directoy of the corrupt TM, overwriting the existing ones.
Now you should be able to open the old TM, but this does not always work.

Regards
Hermann

I forgot to mention that I used this procedure with Trados 6.5 once, and it worked.
