i've trued looking for the .sv$ files in the autosave file, in the ~tmp folder (after enabeling hidden files) but without any succes..
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.
I have not logged out and I am on a university computer so i cannot show hidden files? how can i recover the file i was working on if i have saved before but not recently. when i open the file it does not recover it just goes to the old file. PC and 2014 edition
