If you are using AutoCAD 2012 or 2013 for Mac, then look for your sv$ files in "~/Documents/Autodesk/Autosave/" folder (Documents folder inside your home folder)

If you are using AC 2011, and there are no auto-saved files in "/private/tmp/" folder, then you loose them forever, because the contents of "/private/tmp/" folder erased on each system reboot.

Welcome to Autodesk Forums!

Hi,

Although it is AC for Mac forum let me try:
What do you see in Recover manager?
When you are trying to open your damaged file - does AutoCAD asks about Recover?
Or you just not saved file before closing it?
