Hello
I don't understand what's happening to the file names.
If I add a file to be translated and then I remove it (there is a pop up asking me to remove the file from the list or to remove it from the archive. I tried both options.
And when I re-upload the same file (same name as well) it opens it adding a number at the end of the file name. I tried to do the same action several times, and when I uploaded the file it added a sequence number, i.e. at the second time I uploaded the file it became xxxx1, and so on.

And only for one specific project when I want to remove a file, now it also asks me to remove both txlf file and source file,

Maybe I made a change in the settings, but I don't know where and what.

Thanks
Lucia

You are obviously Feb 28

trying to open/re-open/save one and the same file in the same location, so the system adds numbers in order to avoid overwriting.

What about mentioning some "archive": aren't you trying to work with a file by opening it directly from some archive?

Avoiding overwriting.... Feb 28

is good.
As to the Archive, iI refer to the Archive in Wordfast 4 folders. Don't you have an Archive in the project folder?

You may have archives Feb 28

wherever you wish/need. However, you cannot work with files directly from archives.

And no, I don't have any archives in any work folders as this is not a proper place for them.

Archive location Feb 28

In the most recent versions, when you delete a txlf file from a project, it asks you to remove it from the list or from the list and the archive. Do you mean that archive?

And where is it?

Anyway, when I re-uploaded the file, I took it from the its folder, not in the archive or the project folder.
