Someone else in using the project

Recommended Posts

Please help. I’m in a bit of a pickle.
Here’s what I did today.
1) Backed up project.
2) Validated integrity of project – no problems found.
3) Re-optimised project. Lots of errors, files not found, things missing etc.
4) TMG went away.
5) Restarted TMG but it couldn’t open the project.
6) Attempted to restore backup but I got the message that someone else is using the project.
7) Rebooted and repeated step 6
8) Created a new blank project and repeated step 6.
9) Rebooted and repeated step 6 with a much older backup – same result.
10) Tried to open TMG Utility with this result
Error -1 from [CTMGDB.VerifyIndexFiles]
Index files are missing (see below); open the dataset in TMG to build the index files, then close TMG and try again.
Index file(s) missing:
But I can't open the dataset to rebuild the index files. I have lots of backups but TMG won’t restore any of them. Please help.
I’m using Gold UK edition v. 8.08.000 on Windows 7.
TIA, Irene

Well, I'm not sure exactly what happened but I fixed the problem by using a backup of the entire projects path. I opened a 2 year old version of my project which was in a previous incarnation of version 8. I chose to do this away from the default TMG path. This project opened up with no problems. I applied my latest backup from this morning and it worked just fine. I moved all of these files back to the original folder and opened the project from there.


All is well again, I think.
