How can I find the "tmp" folder where autocad allocates the autosave files so that I can recover one after a sudden crash?
I just can't find the folder in finder!
Solved! Go to Solution.
you can find "autosaved" files in "/private/tmp/", because tmp is just an alias (link) to this folder. Also note, that private folder is "hidden folder", so you have to enable Finder to show hidden files.
I think, that it will be interesting for you to read this: Changing the Autosave File Location in AutoCAD for Mac
I read the article you suggest, and was able to change the folder where my autosave files are saved, but i still can't find the tmp folder where my lost work may be... I enabled finder to show the hidden folders, but it wasn't enough...
In the windows explorer bar type %TEMP% and it will bring you to your temp folder. You will need to have hidden folders and files showing in Tools-> Options.
Is there anyway to recover the sv$ file if I never changed the autosave loaction from the default and I stupidly already restarted my computer? I just read somewhere that the temporary folder where AutoCAD dumps the sv$ automatically empties when the computer is restarted,
I've lost so much work because I didn't save my progress as I went like I should have... I'm sure the sv$ would be there waiting for me somewhere if I hadn't already rebooted.
Please tell me there is some way to get it back!
I've saved by mistake an older version of my project file over the new one - three weeks of work gone in a second..
i've trued looking for the .sv$ files in the autosave file, in the ~tmp folder (after enabeling hidden files) but without any succes i could only find the .sv$ of the files which are open
