missing objects and lines in the file

i made plans using autocad and i have been working on this file for 2 months now, i have closed it and opened it multiple times and cope it to deferent locations on my computer and a shared file in my work place. the problem is that today i saved it and coped it to the shared file and reopened the original file and there were multiple plans deleted from the file i opened the cope file same problem happened, but when i look at the preview in my file explorer i see that the missing plans are there but when i open it they are not there also the backup files same problem 

i will attach the file the missing items most of them are lines that i drew if anyone can help i will appreciate it

@leenbasem21 ,

 

Perform a RECOVER.

Greetings. The preview in file explorer has never been a live look inside a DWG file. It s astatic image from the last successful save of the file embedded inside the DWG file. Here are some troubleshooting tips

See below, your file's content and preview image match here for me too

Perhaps you are remembering extra content and that missing content is somewhere else found in all of these?

Ha, I think I know what you did not do (the flaw of assuming the preview is a live look into your file): ZOOM Extents inside your own DWG file and see for yourself.
