  1. Zip File Back Up Error

    Thanks again Jim. I can get it to back up locally now and then copy the file across to OneDrive. A little bit more manual than before, but not too bad. Grady
  2. Zip File Back Up Error

    I am using TMG 9.05 within a Parallels shell 17.1.1 for Windows 10 Home on a MacBook 12.1. Last successfully backed up 3 days ago to Microsoft OneDrive on my MacBook (2018). Tried to back up today and got a TMG error message: "Input file read failure - this error occurs when a file read operation is performed on a Zip file that is locked or restricted by another process." I can't think of anything I have done to cause this problem. It's possible I upgraded to Mac OS 12.1 after the last backup there days ago Any suggestions very much appreciated. Thank You, Grady Houseknecht "
  3. Zip File Back Up Error

    Thanks for the suggestion Jim. Should have thought of it myself. Not that I think this would make a difference, but I forgot to mention I'm running Parallels/Windows/TMG on an external monitor. Tried rebooting Windows, rebooting the Mac, opening TMG on the Mac (monitor) only. Same problem/error message each time. Any other thoughts? I've stopped imputting data as the thought of possibly losing it would be nerve-racking. With the Mac I back up several times a day (automatically) via Time Machine to an attached hard drive. Don't know if I could recover TMG from it aside from this relying upon hardware and not the cloud. Again, thank you Jim for the suggestion. Regards, Grady
  4. Hi, I'm running TMG 9.05 under W10 on a Mac using Parallels Desktop 16.1.2. My TMG window cannot be closed. I was working with a source citation box (having used Add Person + icon) and must have hit cancel without then seeing the pop up box: "Are you sure you want to lose the changes to this screen?" and continued to work within the citation box. Now I have three windows open, none of which can be closed (Add Person, Citation, Yes/No lose changes warning). None of the Yes, No, Cancel, Ok buttons work and the menu items are all grayed. I've tried to close the window through CTRL/ALT/DEL to no avail. Have also opened a new window which will close but not the old one. Have shut down Windows, Parallels and my MacBook - nothing works. I can open and work with within a new window, but cannot optimize it nor back it up because the other window is still open. HELP!!
  5. TMG Window Hung Windows 10 on Big Sur OS11.1

    Thank you Jim. Actually, I wasn't doing the Mac keyboard version of CTR/ALT/DEL (CTR/OPT/DEL), but erroneously was using CTR/CMD/DEL. Closed the program from Task Manager without getting involved in the background processes and that did the trick. Thank you!
  6. Source Search by Repository

    Thank You Jim - works great!
  7. Source Search by Repository

    Hi, is there a way to pull up a list of sources that are attached to a particular repository? Early on I set up two repositories that are named the same and I cannot recall the difference(s) between the two. If I could see the sources to which they are attached, it would help to see if I need to merge the two or write a memo for each (as I should have done in the first place) to establish their separate purposes. Thank You!
