    I have a .dwg file that i can not open.
    I opend Autocad and did a recover and

    Is there a .bak file?

    If not what version are you using, the 2008 recover is much better than previous releases. If you don't have 2008 you can post the file and I'll try to recover and post back for you.

    Yes I have a .bak file. It would not recover as well.
    I had someone recover the file in 2008 and that worked...
    Thanks...

    Excellent happy I could help I'm glad you got a solution.

    I've had a few files that wouldn't recover unless I used 2008 to do so, I guess Autodesk must have improved this tool.
