There are various folders within the TMS DATA folder. Here is a list of the most common folders:
Archive This is where archived items are stored. Each organization has a separate folder with archived jobs saved within.
CVTUpload When upload actions happen at the Convert Upload step, the files that are uploaded are kept here until removed by the archive process. The structure is a folder for each user using their UserID for the folder name, and then folders marked with a timestamp in the form of yyyymd_hms.
Download Location where CTA logs are kept. CTA logs are only turned on by changing values in the tblSettings table in the TMS database.
ITDUpload When a bilingual file is uploaded, the files that are stored here until removed by the archive process. The structure is a folder for each user using their UserID for the folder name, and then folders marked with a timestamp.
Logs The location of the various TMS logs
NewJobs When a job is created, the instructions to TMS on what configuration, languages and files to needed to create the job is stored here. Each XML file contains the details for each job. They can be in separate folders, or a single file depending on the configuration. The JobRequest column in tblJobs has the location of this file for each Job in TMS.
Resources All resources used within TMS are stored here. This includes configurations, job reference material, and anything that is not directly related to the files for translation.
SW_SCRIPTS Location where Broker scripts are run. They are copied here from the Resources folder when they have been requested in a TMS workflow step and executed from this folder. If more than one Broker uses the same filename, it will be overwritten on copy, so when testing, you should always confirm you have the correct script.
TC The Translation Content folder which contains all data for jobs. Each folder corresponds to the Job ID that a job has, which then contains a SRC and TGT folder. This can be seen as the main area in the file system that TMS operations on when working on a job.
TMExport Location where TM Exports are kept. Each organization has a separate folder where zipped TMs are saved.
Transfer The folder contains uploads and downloads performed by each user. Each folder within the Transfer folder is linked to a UserID, and each UserID's folder contains an Upload and Download folder. This is cleared according to the archive settings.
