I have been using wordfast happily for a couple of years and suddenly one day, after having some computer problems, my TM would no longer install. I have tried reorganising, but to no avail. Now my TM reads: 5000 kb, but no TUs. I tried installing the latest wordfast with my TM on another computer and the same thing happened - TM cannot be loaded. Any suggestions will be hugely appreciated.

1) Delete (or rename) the index (.itx) and reorganize again. The index will be recreated. This might work but probably won't. OTOH, it does no harm and is easy to do.

2) The TM is a plain text file, open it in Notepad (turn off wordwrap) and see if anything looks "wrong". You can compare it with another TM that is OK. If you see a bad line, you can delete it and the rest of the TM should be OK. Once again, delete the index and reorganize.
