After using ZWCAD for a while, you find there are some file with SV$ as extension in your folder. How to rename sv$ to dwg, how to change sv$ to dwg, what is SV$ file? How to open SV$ file in CAD? How to convert SV$ to dwg? How to restore dwg from SV$?


Solution:
The SV$ file is automatically saved DWG file, if you start the automatic save option, your drawing is saved at specified time intervals. By default, system assigned the name filename .sv$ for temporarily saved files, filename here refers to current drawing name.
The temporary files are removed automatically when a drawing closes normally. However, these files are not deleted if there is a program failure or power failure. You can restore dwg from SV$ by reverting to a previous version of your drawing from the automatically saved file. In order to do that, you have to rename the file using a .dwg extension.


You can find SV$ location from here “C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp”.
