How to repair a corrupted AutoCAD drawing project DWG file

How can you recover a DWG file? The .DWG recovery tool opens your damaged AutoCAD project and exports data into a new drawing. The DWG recovery tool does not use AutoCAD libraries to read files. To expedite the process, you can manually specify the version of the DWG file to be recovered.

The DWG file recovery tool box exports the extracted data directly into AutoCAD. If you don't have it installed, you will see a corresponding notification. If you have several versions of AutoCAD installed on the same system, the DWG repair tool will let you choose the one the data should be exported to.

Note:
  • The program can only recover files created using AutoCAD version 15 (AutoCAD 2000) and higher. The program does not recover AutoCAD data files from earlier versions.
  • The software supports exporting recovered data into AutoCAD 2000 or higher.
  • The software cannot export recovered data into AutoCAD LT. OLE Automation is blocked in AutoCAD LT.

Requirements:

  • Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/Vista/7/8/10 or Windows Server 2003/2008/2012/2016 and above

Options:

In the menu Tools-Options program options are separated into two parts: Recovery method and Additional. The Recovery method tab enables choosing from three available file recovery algorithms:

  • Direct read. Direct file reading algorithm. This tries to find objects using tables and addresses from file headings. The quickest method, but very sensitive to errors.
  • Recovery read. Recovery read for every DWG format version uses its own methods for searching objects in files. The method does not depend on tables or addresses. After all objects have been found in the file the program uses special algorithms to recover connections between objects.
  • Recovery read + Direct read. Combined method. First recovery read is run, then the program searches for tables in files. If it finds tables, then it recovers a more accurate draft. If there is no table, then the result will be analogous to the Recovery Read option.

The Additional tab enables setting certain additional program parameters:

  • Recover blocks without INSERTs. If this option is turned on, then for those blocks which do not have insertion points, new insertion points will be forcibly created. This option guarantees that all recovered blocks will appear on the draft. If this option is turned off, then only blocks for which corresponding insertion points were found in the file will appear on the draft. (Blocks, in this context are BLOCK type objects, and insertion points are INSERT type objects. Roughly speaking, if it is necessary to recover the maximum, then turn on this option.. If it is necessary just to recover the exact position of the blocks, without any extra rubbish, then turn off this option).
  • Convert anonymous blocks to normal blocks. Autocad creates auxilliary anonymous blocks for displaying certain objects, such as dimension, hatch, etc. It is impossible to create such a block oneself. This option converts anonymous blocks found in the file into ordinary blocks, which makes it possible to recover them on draft. (Like the previous point, if you want to restore to a maximum, turn the option on. If you want to remove extra objects, turn off the option).
  • Smart decompress. Use nonstandard algorithms to unpack data. These algorithms are significantly faster than usual ones, however, there is a small chance that they might miss some data in the file.
Note: the program can only recover files of the AutoCAD version 15 (AutoCAD 2000) and higher. The program does not recover AutoCAD data files of earlier versions.

Answer:

Before exporting data that has been restored from a program in AutoCAD you will want to adjust your security settings to the minimal level.

  1. Select Options on the main menu
  2. Click on the System tab
  3. Click on the Security Options button
  4. Set the Security Level value to Off
  5. Click on the OK button

Answer:

You should:

  1. If you know which version of AutoCAD the damaged file was saved in, please indicate this version in the DWG Version menu. In this case recovery algorithms will be applied only for the version indicated, which significantly decreases the file recovery time. If Autodetect is selected, then, for the damaged file, recovery algorithms will be applied for all versions. Explanation of DWG versions:
    • R2000 Is used in AutoCAD 2000, AutoCAD 2000i, AutoCAD 2002.
    • R2004 Is used in AutoCAD 2004, AutoCAD 2005, AutoCAD 2006.
    • R2007 Is used in AutoCAD 2007, AutoCAD 2008, AutoCAD 2009.
    • R2010 Is used in AutoCAD 2010, AutoCAD 2011.
  2. Make sure that Smart Decompress option, located in Tools-Options-Additional is on. If the option is on, then the program uses modified data unpacking methods. They are faster than standard methods, however, some data may be missed. If the option is off, then the program uses standard data unpacking methods.
