This post will explain the procedure to use ScriptPro 2.0 tool to recover a set of AutoCAD drawing files.
Download the ScriptPro 2.0 tool from http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/item?siteID=123112&id=4091678&linkID=9240618
Create and save an AutoCAD script file which does the recover for a given drawing file. You can use the ScriptPro key words to open and save the drawing file. Refer below script file. Below script file appends the “_recovered” to the drawing file after recovery. For example, drawing name “wheel.dwg” will be saved as “wheel_recovered.dwg” after running the script.
Start the ScriptPro tool.
Use the “wizard” options to start the ScriptPro wizard.
Browse and selected the Script file saved in Step2 as the script file to use. Refer “a”
Add the drawing files which need to be purged using “Add” button in wizard. Refer “b”
Select the AutoCAD version to be used for the batch operation. Refer “c”
Press “Finish” button to close wizard dialog. Refer “d”.
As recovery command opens the drawing file, we need to make sure that the ScriptPro tool does not open the drawing file. so click settings button in the wizard
Select options "Run script without opening drawing file". Modify the process time value if your drawings are large and need extra time to open
Run the ScriptPro tool
