Q - question

How to convert a .BAK file to a .DWG?

A - answer Just rename the backup file to a drawing file with the .DWG extension.

If you cannot see file extensions, go to Windows Explorer options and uncheck the "Hide file extensions for known file types" option.

In AutoCAD 2006 (and higher) you can use the Drawing Recovery Manager to recover .BAK files automatically.
