Validate and Repair message

I run a validation from time to time to clear up errors. Occasionally I get an error that is fixed. This is the most recent that will not go away...

I keep getting the "Additional data conversion in QWMain started"
No matter how many times I validate or super-validate it won't go away. What is it? What does it mean and is it a problem?

    Hello @Pilotbum

    Thank you for reaching out to the Community regarding your issue. When you perform the validate does it ever perform any actions after performing the validate. The message you get should perform some form of action if it's actively working on it. I'm wondering if you can replicate the issue if you copy it as well. I'll leave steps down below on copying and validating the file. It'll be the fourth step below.

    Once you get a chance to try these steps, please let us know what you find.  From there we'll better understand our next steps.

    Thanks,

    Hi Francisco,

    If there were any actions being performed after the validate, they were not visible. That said, after the validations now that message is gone.
