    Drawing Recovery

    Josiah Thompson

      Solidworks crashed on me and I lost some work I did on a drawing. I have been combing through the forums looking for solutions. I have been testing them but not getting any results.

       

      Sequence of events reproducing problem.

           1. attempt to open assembly drawing and get "SW encountered a problem with the file, do you want to repair?"

           2. SW encountered a problem with "recovered_..." contact support.

       

      I attempted booting through SW RX, a full reboot, attempting to open autosaved file. There is no history on the PDM, this is the first edit since PDM was set up.  Any suggestions?

      The plan right now is to start over. As my instructor used to say. "You can draw it faster the second time" haha!
