A question about recovering old drawings into V12

PostPosted by BNMike » Tue Jun 02, 2015 10:44 pm

Hi folks........

Having solved my loading problem, I now have another question. A few years ago, I had a computer crash in which I lost several of my drawings. I thought I had them backed up, but it turned out not to be the case. I had a recovery attempt made, and I have a CD full of drawings, but I don't remember which version of Gen Cadd I was using. I tried to open a couple of the drawings in V12, but I get a message that they are not a valid CADD file. I understand that they haven't been "migrated" since 2008.

My question is: Is there any way to recover these files? I don't have any of the old versions on this machine.

Thanks, very much for any help.

Mike,

First we need to determine if the data is good. Can you send me a couple drawings that do not load and I'll run some tests.
Send to contact@generalcadd.com

Sorry Mike, the files do not contain any GCP drawing data. There's nothing I can do.
