      This is from the Atodesk site:
      You might have leftover .dwl or dwl2 files in the folder directory. These are two hidden files that have the same name as the .dwg file but with the extensions .dwl and .dwl2. In the Windows Control Panel, go to Folder Options. On the View tab, turn on the option to show hidden files. You can then go back to the folder directory and delete the .dwl and .dwl2 files if they are found alongside your DWG file. Attempt to open the DWG again.

        In the options AutoCad in the FILES tab, (the leftmost tab) there is a way to AutoSave. There AutoCad saves temporary files, usually with extension sv$ (unless otherwise specified). It is necessary to look for there. As a rule, if the files are there, then you can find them by date, and their volume can be seen, there is in them something, or they are empty. For opening it is necessary to rename simply them, having added the dwg expansion. Too most it is possible to make with files with the bak expansion. And else in autocad there is a command "recover". It allows you to open corrupted files.
        Or use the utility of DWG Recovery Kit for restore your damaged DWG FILE.
        Recovery tools for corrupted files of Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Address Book, Zip, RAR, Excel, Word, Access, PowerPoint, Project, Onenote, Flash, CD, DBF, PDF, SQL, Server, MySql, Registry, Photoshop, Illustrator, Exchange Server, AutoCAD, CorelDRAW, Lotus Notes.

          Error message: "drawing file is not valid"
          by thibcorm
          I'm using version 2004. A friend sent me two files (generated by someone other than him).
          When I tried to open the files in version 04 (which is what I use)... I've got the same error message (drawing file is not valid).

          Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

          I don't know how many have noticed that the restriction on attachments to JPG, GIF and ZIP seems to have disappeared (haven't checked if this works, but you can choose from "all files"). One very nice new feature is that if you edit a post with an attachment, you no longer lose the attachment....
