  • In the options  AutoCad in the FILES tab, (the leftmost tab) there is a way to AutoSave. There AutoCad saves temporary files, usually with extension sv$  (unless otherwise specified). It is necessary to look for there. As a rule, if the files are there, then you can find them by date, and their volume can be seen, there is in them something, or they are empty. For opening it is necessary to rename simply them, having added the dwg expansion. Too most it is possible to make with files with the bak expansion. And else  in autocad there is a command "recover". It allows you to open corrupted files.

    Or use the utility of DWG Recovery Kit for restore your damaged DWG FILE.

  • Hi JoshuaFitzgerald,

    This forum is for developers discussing developing issues involve Microsoft Office product.

    Since the issue is more relative to AutoCad, I suggest that you get more effective response from Official Support of AutoCad.
