Hi - I started working with WF-Anywhere this week and all went well for the first 3 days. I successfully worked with and uploaded about 3 translation memories.
Now however the system seems to have stuck. I can't delete any of the TMs that I have uploaded (It just goes to "background" with 1 % progress after about 1 hour). Also I can no longer upload any new TMs. Is there a volume limit above which everything blocks? -but if so why can't I delete any TMs.

Thanks for any assist

This may depend on a number of factors. See the following video:

Also see the following technical explanation by Yves (about what is going on "under the hood"):

Generally speaking, you should ask all WFA-related questions on the dedicated list, as this is where the people who really know about it hang out.

OK 24 hours to load a TM Oct 28, 2011

Thanks Dominique - once again your videos were invaluable. I don't think it says in the WF-A manual that it takes 24 hours to upload a memory!I must just be less impatient.

PS Do you have to leave your computer on for the whole of that time?

Actually, I've been told 24 hours is unusually long. It may in fact have been self-induced, as I uploaded, deleted and re-uploaded my big TM several times for the purpose of recording the video. When I did it for the first time (with no recording), the entire process (uploading + importing) took only took about 10 minutes.

No, not at all. I only left mine on for the purpose of recording the video, since I had a timer running. The processing is done by the server, so once you've uploaded your TM, you can shut down your own computer if you want. You can also do something else in WFA, like translating a document (obviously, not with the TM being processed by the server, or at least not all of it).
