Drag the svs file onto your desk top.
Right click and rename des ( or whatever you want)
Open command prompt (start/programs/accessories/ command prompt)
type the following
ren des des.dwg
The svs file will now change to a dwg file
Saves some typing in the command prompt.
You would have to keep changing directories to get to your temp save file.
For handiness I created a file on my desktop and named it Acad
Autosaves,which I then made my default autosave location.
Personal choice really.
Do you have the file extensions showing in Windows Explorer when you
are renaming them? If you don't see the .sv$ extension, then the
extension will be preserved and you will actually end up with
Open any explorer window, (such as opening "my computer"), click tools
in the top menu, click folder options, view, in the box remove check
mark by "hide extensions for known file types" apply, apply to all folders.
So how did you know they were .sv$ files if you can't see the extensions?
