I'm in AutoCAD 2013. I've been working on a drawing everyday (was just working on it yesterday), but can't open it now. I just get a blank gray screen when I open if from within AutoCAD. When I open it from my computer drive while AutoCAD is closed, AutoCAD opens and I get "Drawing1.dwg." I've tried the RECOVER command, but I don't get a response. I tried RECOVERALL command which let me choose a file to recover, but it responded saying it could not recover the drawing. Can anyone help me find this drawing? Thanks.
same thing happening to me! I just installed 2014 and after i save a drawing i can't open it.
changing the bak to dwg did nothing... anyone know what is happening? Thanks!
We have the same problem on several pc's. Renaming the .bak to .dwg solved the problem. But as CAD manager the main question remains 'Why is this happening'? How can I solve this issue permanently?
the 'why' will take some investigation. Start with the operators -- any error messages on save? autosave on or off? isavepercent is set to what? Cimmuncation center running or diabled? 360 synching? content server/explorer running?
Continue investigating with the Windows Event viewer logs. Anything showing there? Is auditing enabled?
File local, or on a server? server running windows OS or somehting else? is a NAS involved?
1.) change .bak to .dwg
2.) open the file ( it opens as blank file)
2.) click the drawing utilities tab then recover then search for the file
hope it works GODbless you
