Thanks Phillippe. Your explanation is very helpful.
I think they do this to keep us on our toes!

A cross-file repetition is a segment that's repeated in another file from the lot analysed. They are actual "100%" repetitions, i.e. repetitions as we dinosaurs know them.
I don't know why cross-file repetitions and intra-file repetitions are segregated. Apart from the fact that the more detailed the analysis, the more confusing. Gluing files together makes cross- and intra-file repetitions repetitions (good one).
No idea either about how they are displayed in Trados.
A rate of 63% of cross-file repetitions between, say, two files means that they are very similar.
