We keep having this error, the files is unrecoverable the file size is 0.
So we lose all of the work we just did.
We are saving the drawings as autocad 2004 files
anyone else having this problem?

Hi Mike,
I can not help with the cause of your problem, but, there is no need to loose all of your work.

What is your Auto Save time setting?, in 'Tools' - 'Options' - 'Settings' ? I have this set to 15mins, so the most I would lose is 15 mins of work.

Then look at the next tab, 'Paths/Files'
Look at the 'Auto Backup' location, this is where the Auto-saved files are stored.
Look for the file named as per your drawing but it will be a '$SV' file (eg FRED.DWG would be saved as FRED.$SV), this can be renamed to a 'DWG' file and then opened.
You can then use SaveAs to save the drawing to a location/filename of your choice.
