I think I may have overwritten a plan I created in March accidentally as I've used it to do some other detailed drawings on the same project. Can anyone tell me if I can locate an old Back up file that I could use to save me having to re-type all of my annotations on my plan.

Do you have Autosave turned on?  You can verify by going to VW Preferences > Autosave. The default setting has Autosave "on" and saves a backup every 15 minutes to a folder named "VW Backup" in the same location as your work file.


If there is no such folder then try a search for "VW Backup". If you work with the your files from your desktop then the back-up will also be on your desktop.


Hope this helps.
