Bad File Help

49 Views, 2 Replies

My PC decided to restart on its own, I was in AutoCAD at the time and when I
try to reopen the file it needs recovery but won't recover. I tried to add
it as a block in a new file and it says it an invalid file, same goes for
xref. Anyone know if I can try anything else.

There should be a backup file with the .bak extension or possibly an
autosave file that you could use. It is very strange that the xref is bad.
Were you in the middle of a refedit of the xref? Otherwise that file was
not open for writing at the time your computer shutdown and should not be
affected.
Have you had problems with any other files since the restart occurred?
What operating system are you using?

The backup is several hours old, and the autosave is missing. I tried to add
the file as an xref to recover it but that didn't work also. So I'm stuck
unless some one another option to try.
