.ms5 files

Post by azstew » Thu Dec 13, 2007 7:09 am

Can ms5 files be used to re-create a .dwg file?

my .sv$ got overwritten, and I lost all changes I made to a drawing.

Is there a way to get my changes back?

MicroSurvey CAD 2005 created a MSD database file. MicroSurvey CAD 2008, when it opens this MSD file the first time, actually makes a copy to MS5 before it converts it to the new MSZ file format.

So the MS5 file is actually the old MSD file - so it is the database not the drawing.
