Different solutions you may find out here:-
http://www.filerepairforum.com/forum/cad-tools/cad-tools-aa/dwg/444-%E2%80%8Berror-cannot-open-file-open-cad-drawing-dwg-format - a lot of different opinions might be your saving.

BAK files are very important, explanation below:
Consider what AutoCAD does during a QSAVE (assuming "create BAK" is enabled)
1. It writes the contents of the editor to a temp file.
2. It renames the current drawing from .DWG to .BAK
3. It renames the temp file to the correct file name with a .DWG extension.

I don't see how you have had problems with BAK files since it's simply a copy of your last save. In fact, if you QSAVE twice in a row, then your BAK = the DWG.

My autocad dwg files have been corrupted


Displays a list of all drawing files that were open at the time of a program or system failure. You can preview and open each drawing or backup file to choose which one should be saved as the primary DWG file. After a program or system failure, the Drawing Recovery Manager opens the next time you start the application. Drawing Recovery Manager displays a list of all drawing files that were open. The System Variable RECOVERYMODE controls whether drawing recovery information is recorded after a system failure and whether to show the Drawing Recovery Manager or not.

If you want to help yourself, Autodesk and other AutoCAD users make sure to send in any errors to Autodesk when you see the Customer Error Report dialog box (CER).


Finally a solution that sometimes helps if AutoCAD cannot fix the problem is to try to fix the drawing in another program that can open and save DWG files. The more users having the similar problem the better chance it will be fixed in a service pack or future version. Eventually you might
get DWG Restore Toolbox saying the problem is fixed.

As one of solutions I can advise you to try to open your files in MS Visio, Compass or using another program which could open dwg file. Or try to recover them using AutoCAD recovery function.

Opening dwgs in autocad


In the past the fastest way to fix this is to go directly to the file and try to open it. It is possible that file or database has been corrupted. In some instances the file type dwg is not associated with autocad and the application hangs because it is looking for .dwg as an associated file type to autocad.

Let me know if you need further clarification.
Good luck!
