Unfortunately it appears that this file is corrupt beyond repair. I have tried every recovery tool available to me but without success. If you use a backup system you may want to try and recover this file from a time before it was corrupt. You might also want to check for a BAK file, or search in C:\Windows\Temp for an Automatic Save file. I'm sorry that this file was not able to be recovered.

One additional problem, from our vendor we have got a drawing with similar problems, attached drawing file  can't be opened or repared in AutoCAD 2004/2010, but without problem i've opened the file in DraftSight editor (from SolidWorks).

 

The message what i got, when tried to open the drawing in ACAD2010:

 

FATAL ERROR: Out of memory -shutting down.

 

My try to recover it was not successfull.

It looks like the drawing was drawn in other non AutoDESK application!?

 

Could you give me some recommendations regarding my problem?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi. Could you please help me with attached drawing? I draw it in Autocad2010.

I tried to open it in the same version- AutoCad2010 and and got the message "Drawing is not valid"..I can see the file in the preview window before opening it but cannot open it.

Thank you so much!

The preview is NOT the file or an inidcation of file content, but a raster image integrated into the file and simply shows the last saved date.

 

2011 will not open your file, neither will my (2) non-Autodesk DWG programs. It's dead.

Hello,

 

Can anybody help me with this drawing? I dont understand what happend. 02/04/2011 I drew as always and now, my flash drive says before using the drive, it wants to format it. I dont know what to do. I have only 2 files left and they are all not valid.  Other file I cant upload it comes up above 3,6 mb


I know there is programs that restores the files. But  I'm afraid that if I format my USB, all files will be removed from there, and have nothing to be recovery.

Maybe someone has already an situation like this, when we had to risk formatting all the files, and found a way to return all the information?
Please describe step by step of what program and what to click? Thanks in advance.

I get the same message when I try to open any file that is stored on our server. I have to save a copy of the file somewhere on my pc like the desktop then I am able to open the file with out issues. Just be sure to save it back onto your server not the desktop when you are done editing it.
