i made a mistake and i saved a wrong drowing file on a very important file! i used recovery manager but it just shows the last one, what should i do to reach the file befor??

i am using autocad2007 and the file is DWG.

Hi,

 

you have two chances:

  • you have a BAK-file from the one you overwrote, then you can rename it to *.DWG and open it.
  • you have a backup from your filesystem, then start a restore

 

Good luck, - alfred -

hi alfred

by changing to *.DWG nothing changes... it looks just its changing name, not the format...

and for secund chance, where do this filesystems save??

Hi,

 

>> and for secund chance, where do this filesystems save??

I meant the normal Backup-system that runs daily (or however it's configured on your network/your system) to save your data to any other device for archiving and for backup.

Hi,

 

>> how should i change .BAK to .DWG ?

In Windows-Explorer right-click onto the file and start "rename".

If you see no extensions at all then go to the options of Windows-Explorer and activate the option for showing known file-extensions (>>>details<<<).
