Unless I'm reading you incorrectly there doesn't seem to be a file to recover. Have you tried searching for the file name?

This recovery program worked well for one of our posters who had a very tricky issue:

The problem in this instance seems to be "what to look for" but it might unearth something.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

In the options AutoCad in the FILES tab, (the leftmost tab) there is a way to AutoSave. There AutoCad saves temporary files, usually with extension sv$ (unless otherwise specified). It is necessary to look for there. As a rule, if the files are there, then you can find them by date, and their volume can be seen, there is in them something, or they are empty. For opening it is necessary to rename simply them, having added the dwg expansion. Too most it is possible to make with files with the bak expansion. And else in autocad there is a command "recover". It allows you to open corrupted files.
Or use the utility of DWG Recovery Kit for restore your damaged DWG FILE.

you can use drawing utilities->recover option if u saved it atleast once. It will recover till last save.
After selecting option from file menu you can search your file backup in opened dialogbox. please find attached image.
and if still you are not getting bak file then you have to search it in folder where dwg is saved.
