What is an SV$ file?

Backup file created by AutoCAD 2D and 3D design software; stores a backup of the current working design (.DWG file) and is created automatically by the software; automatically deleted when the software successfully shuts down.

More Information

SV$ files can be "converted" to a DWG file simply by renaming the file extension from ".sv$" to ".dwg."

NOTE: SV$ files differ from .BAK files, which are manual backups created when using the Save command.
