Need assistance with recovering an Autocad .DWG file.
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?
