Solved Drawing - Corrupt/Cannot Open/Cannot Save

Specs: Windows Vista
Hello all,

The error first occurred when I was editing the drawing file.
An error about that particular file’s auto-recovery file was showing up every time I tried to save or tried to edit the properties of an object.

I need help in diagnosing this issue please, as I do not want to keep having to throw out my work.

If the drawing file (DWG) still not opens, perform the following steps in the order listed:

Open the drawing file
Type PURGE at the command line. With all checkboxes checked on, click Purge All.
Purge Registered Applications (from the command line):
"R" for Regapps (registered applications), then Enter
"N" when asked to verify each name to be purged, then Enter
Purge All (from the command line):
"A" for All, then Enter
"N" when asked to verify each name to be purged, then Enter
Audit and fix any errors

"Y" for Yes to fix any errors, then Enter
Save the drawing file
