I can load a local TM into my project and it works great - the first time. When I close the program and re-open it, it says it cannot load my TM due to a collection exception. I can re-load the backup copy of my TM and it works, but the next time I close and re-open the program again, I get the same error message again. How can I fix this?

Cannot load collection exception keeps happening Jul 4, 2019

I have had the same issue on many occasions. I really need this to get fixed as I am wasting a lot of time and effort.
So far all I can do is Import an existing TM (losing the latest translations done).

TM file(s) inaccessible Jul 4, 2019

The cryptic error message means WFP5 cannot access the TM file(s). Have you renamed, moved, or deleted any of the TM file(s) or the folder in which they are stored? If so, this would explain why the TM became inaccessible to the software.

If you haven't touched the files, are they perhaps stored in a folder synced to the cloud (Dropbox, Google Drive etc.)? If so, the syncing process can make the files unavailable to WFP5. Even worse, when the automatic syncing process is working wit

The cryptic error message means WFP5 cannot access the TM file(s). Have you renamed, moved, or deleted any of the TM file(s) or the folder in which they are stored? If so, this would explain why the TM became inaccessible to the software.

If you haven't touched the files, are they perhaps stored in a folder synced to the cloud (Dropbox, Google Drive etc.)? If so, the syncing process can make the files unavailable to WFP5. Even worse, when the automatic syncing process is working with the files while WFP5 accesses them, the files may get corrupted. So keeping WFP5 TMs in cloud folders is strongly discouraged. If you still want to keep them in a cloud folder, make sure you always pause the syncing process while you work in WFP5 (but not all cloud services let you pause the syncing process, I believe).

Thank you David, it was indeed both of your suggestions: OneDrive and TM renamed and/or in different path (all subsequent to the cloud interferring).
I have now uninstalled OneDrive from my laptop.

Does it mean I lost my 11000-word job due today?
