Q - question

Easy selection of DWG backup files to restore.

A - answer If you need to quickly restore an older backup drawing file in AutoCAD, you can use the SureSave utility and its function "List and restore backup DWGs".

Start the SURESAVE command and click "All SureSaves" (any backup drawing) or "This SureSaves" (only backups of the current DWG) - you will get a list of all automatically stored backup drawings, sorted historically. Double-click a drawing file to restore it to a separate AutoCAD window.
