In the last week I have had 2 dwg files not remember my last save from the previous day of work. I have looked in the temp folder where the autosaves are stored and the first time I was able to recover from the autosave file. The last time the autosave file also did not have my most recent drawing changes. I use quicksave rather religioulsy and I rarely have more than one dwg open at a time as well. It seems to me there is a randomly occuring issue for me and saving. Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be causing this and any steps I can try to fix this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
What usually works for me is this.
This will separate your saves and backups (.sv$ and .bak) in one location outside of a temp folder. Then if needed you can rename the extension back to .dwg...
Hope this helps...
I have been experiencing the same problem. I am losing days of work and looking like an idiot sending out drawings that don't have the changes I say I have made. It has happened a lot lately. Is there a glitch in the software?
Also, I followed the instructions above but got hung up on the last instruction. Enter "movebak" on command line. I am assuming you mean the main command line on at the bottom of the screen. It does not recognize the command.
Is it possible that you do not have "express tools" loaded. Maybe this KBA can help:.
Hope this helps...
It would be nice if AutoCad had a autosave option ! A kind of incremental function that not overwrites the last.
1 that saves every 10 minits or that you could edit this value.
Or that you could give the save directory.
Or that you could give the save file extention.
In Acad version 2.14 this was the case, I don't know where it wend wrong.
