..did you have backup set?... or, have you checked your ../SWBackupDirectory?
or.. a backup on a network drive??
..anyhow.. I thought there was a recover discussion... can't find it... maybe I was dreaming?
..last resort is the VAR.. I believe they would have to send to SW Corp.. (that could take.... no time?)
i am just going to redo the part, i am hating how this is a major flaw in solidworks because its happened to me before on other computers. Thanks for the help,
Open you Assembly and change the configuration to Advance. Then Open
A box will open, change to New configuration showing assembly structure only. Call it anything you like (Troubleshoot)
The Assembly will open with all parts suppressed
You can then unsuppress each part individually until you find the part (sub-assembly) with the problem.
98% of the time it will open all the parts and you can save! then delete the configuration
This is a great tip. I will try this the next time it happens.
