Do you use automatic file save?

Have you looked in the Temp file location for a xxxxxxx.bak file?

If you find the xxxxxxx.bak file change the extension to xxxxxxx.dwg

If this file is viable you should get you file back to when the last autosave was executed.

But not guaranteed.

Please check if this works.


1. Start a new DWG with no template
2. Run INSERT and selected the corrupted drawing
3. Check the “Explode” option


If not, like Charles' comment, back up file could be your last chance.


Please let me know the results.

If you find files like this " .tmp" in your folder change it to .dwg (with filename for example "sav2b5c.tmp to file.dwg)


Hope it works,
