Command entry: drawingrecovery
Drawing Recovery Manager displays a list of all drawing files that
were open at the time of a program or system failure. You can preview
and open each drawing or backup file to choose which one should
be saved as the primary DWG file.
Displays the drawings that may need to be recovered
after a program or system failure. A top-level drawing node contains
a set of files associated with each drawing. You can expand a top-level
node to display the drawing files and backup files that are candidates
for recovery. If available, up to four files are displayed including
- The recovered drawing file saved at the
time of a program failure (DWG, DWS)
- The automatic save file, also called
the “autosave” file (SV$)
- The drawing backup file (BAK)
- The original drawing file (DWG, DWS)
Once a drawing or backup file is opened and
saved, the corresponding top-level drawing node is removed from
the Backup Files area.

currently selected node in the Backup Files area:
- When a top-level drawing node is selected,
information about each available drawing or backup file associated

file is selected, additional information about that file is displayed.
