 Autocad Autosave Settings? How to Setup Autocad Auto Save?
25-06-2013 12:02 . pm   |   View his/her posts only
can anyone be so kind to tell me how to setup autocad autosave? Settings like the time period for each auto save, the savetime. I forgot where I can find in autocad, I really need to know how to set or adjust autosave in autocad?
Any help will be appreciated.

Welcome to ZWCAD forum, ZWCAD works similar to AutoCAD. You can find the auto save setting in Options dialog box.

You can also setup autocad autosave settings via two autocad system variables, SAVETIME and SAVEFILEPATH.

Set the time period by giving a value to SAVETIME,for example SAVETIME=3, that mean it automatically save drawing for every 3 minutes.

SAVEFILEPATH is used to define a new path for autosave location, input this command on the command line and input a new address.
