DWG never opens, and won't recover

Well, here I am with my sad tale of woe. Loaded C3D yesterday at lunch. Copied LDT 2004 project folder from server onto local hard drive. Built Surface, Alignment and Profile last night. Attempting to show off the "Wows" to a coworker at the moment, and the DWG file I used last night won't Open or Recover. Open gets to 87% and locks up. Recover gets to the salvaged database echo and stops. Any clues? TIA -- Don Reichle Hacker Engineering, Inc.

The Ways of the Work-Around... Created a new DWG file. XREF the belligerent file. Bind and Insert the XREF. Allowed me to access the alignment and surface and profile, but only the surface shows up properly in Prospector. It doesn't know it has an Alignment or Profile or Profile View under Site. Have performed defrag, and wll perform Check Disk on leaving work tonight. So my coworker and I had the chance to wonder at the wisdom of the programmers of putting all the eggs in one basket. Maybe Himanshu will take note, and offer some advice. -- Don Reichle Hacker Engineering, Inc.

Create a couple sites - delete them from the Prospector. You'll never get back in the drawing... sm -- Scott McEachron The D.C.

Hi Scott, I am not able reproduce this issue. Have you created any data within the Sites? Any additional steps would be helpful. thanks, Dan Philbrick Autodesk, Inc.

Could you please compress and attach the DWG file so we can take a look at it? Ofcourse, any details such as what operations you performed during your session might help. Can you reproduce the problem if you start again from your LDT data? Thanks. -- Himanshu

I would be glad to send it in, but it exceeds the maximum allowed on the NG. It's almost 11MB. Can you email me direct and provide an address capable of accepting this size ZIP file? -- Don Reichle Hacker Engineering, Inc.

Hey Himanshu; On attempting to open the now 12MB DWG file: it gets to 37%; the Hard Drive goes nuts; chews up the Pagefile and spits it out (peaks at 2.06GB); and crashes C3D. That's after running a Check Disk last night. -- Don Reichle Hacker Engineering, Inc.
