How to (Potentially) Recover an AutoCAD Drawing If the program crashes at any point the following steps should help you get your file back (to hopefully within the last few commands). Keep in mind though, the best step to take for file recovery is saving your file often…. If you are on your own computer/the office computers you can skip the first step. If you are in the CIRCA Lab do the following: 1.) DO NOT SIGN OFF THE COMPUTER 2.) Open the program back up, there will be a Drawing Recovery Manager dialog box on your left, generally this is of no use, but keep it open just in case as a last resort. 3.) Enter the command SAVEFILEPATH , in the command bar you will see a location (if you are the CIRCA lab, it’ll read something like “C:\temp” if you are in the office it’ll read something like “C:\Documents and Settings\lab\Local Settings\Temp” 4.) Select and copy this file location (don’t copy the quotation marks). To be able to select it you will need to open the command bar in a new window by pressing the F2 button.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
