Repairs a damaged drawing file along with all attached xrefs.


The RECOVERALL command recovers or audits DWG, DWT, and DWS files.

In the Select File dialog box (a standard file selection dialog box), enter the drawing file name or select the damaged drawing file.

The selected drawing file and all attached xrefs, including all nested xrefs, are opened, repaired, resaved, and closed.

Results are displayed in the Drawing Recovery Log window. Each drawing file checked includes a Drawing Recovery Log that can be expanded or collapsed. The entire log can be copied to the Windows clipboard with the Copy to Clipboard button.

When FILEDIA is set to 0 (zero), RECOVERALL displays a command prompt to select a file. You can enter a ~ (tilde) at the prompt to ignore FILEDIA and display the Select File dialog box.
