Need assistance with recover .dwg file.?

tomas34idleton
This morning I tried to open an Autocad 2006 dwg file and I got a message saying that there was a problem with my file and that I had to try to recover it using the RECOVER command.

When I did this, I got the following message: “Reading Handle 171763 Object type AcDbHatch. Error 13 (eUnknown handle) object discarded”.

10 seconds later Autocad crashes!

I noticed that the error had something to do with hatches so I tried to open my file partially leaving out my hatch layers. The problem is that when I try to open my file partially Autocad opens a new blank drawing and does not even open the window where I can choose my layers. Does anybody know of a way to recover my file or is it lost forever?

      Are you using AutoCAD 2006?
      That release used the 2004 file format.

      My suggestion would be to try recovering it in a newer version of autocad (or saving it down to an r12 dxf as a last ditch effort). You can either download a 30 day trial of the current version or download DWG TrueView, which will allow you to save down to older file formats.

      I'd also recommend you ask your questions on a dedicated forum for Autodesk software users, you'll get faster and better responses that way.

      Best of luck.

      I have downloaded the DWG true view 2013 software. File didn't open in it.

      But still I am unable to open the file in the browser, I have also tried to set the permissive mode, but still its not opening in the browser, its get downloaded, then opens in Recovery Toolbox for DWG.

      You may check its free demo here: http://www.dwg.recoverytoolbox.com/
