  • And you need to contact Autodesk Technical Support.  AutoCAD is not a Microsoft product.  Autodesk is the publisher of AutoCAD and Autodesk has sole responsibility for support of AutoCAD.

    Go to http://www.autodesk.com/products/autocad/overview for assistance.

  • Take into use Drawing Recovery Manager or by command _DRAWINGRECOVERY, this instrument will recover drawing which were opened during program failure.

    In case it didn't help you, take a look at DWG Repair Tool at url address http://www.filerepairtools.com/autocad-recovery-tool.html it's autocad recovery wizard reads damaged *.DWG files containing AutoCAD graphics data and exports repaired data directly to a new AutoCAD project

  • Open a blank DWG file and run the RECOVER command. ...
    Open a blank DWG file and run the RECOVERALL command. ...
    Open a blank DWG file and run the INSERT command. ...
    Find a BAK file with the same name in the same directory where the DWG is located www.licenseapps.com
