Re: recovering deleted files

Hi Modman_4:

 

Here is my very, very, very late reply to your comment which you left on Feb. 14, 2011.  (I am wrapped up in a lawsuit and some very urgent matters came up and I just basically dropped everything - including my AutoCAD project - for some time to attend to that matter.)

 

Yes, when I did searches of my hard drive I am including hidden files.

 

I do have automatic saves setup (for every 15 minutes) but AutoCAD 14 does not have a "Tools --> Options" menu selection and I am not sure how to get to the Options Dialogue Box.  However, I did go to Tools --> Preferences and a Preferences Dialogue Box opened.  Under the Files tab there is a list of locations of various files but it does not seem to list where automatic saves places files.  Anyway, I searched my whole hard drive without finding any .BAK or .SV$ files.  (I had inadvertently deleted almost all my AutoCAD drawing files.)

 

However, I did eventually find some of my drawing files which I had backed up on a CD, fortunately, but they are not the latest versions of my drawings. 

 

Thanks much for your comments.

I have used one data recovery software. May be you can download it and have a try. It can do format recovery, unformat and recover deleted files emptied from Recycle Bin. However, if you have overwritten you data, it may not help you.

  • hi friend,
  • You can easily recover files from recycle bin.Sometimes files get corrupted and deleted automatically.Sometimes you may accidentally press the shift + delete key and the files get deleted even from recycle bin.Sometimes due hardware corruption, virus attacks, hard drive failure, abrupt shutdowns files gets deleted and lost.In such cases a good file recovery software cant   recover corrupted or lost files. lost file recovery on windows 7,windows 2000, windows 2003,windows Vista and Windows XP is also possible by this software.You can easily download the free trial version of the software.
