My AutoCAD drawing file (. dwg) has become damaged : 
The file does not open.
The program hangs or crashes in AutoCAD.
Slow program response when working with a file.
Error message when opening or working with the file.
Some commands do not work or are delayed.
Inexplicably large file size.
Problems with Show/Regenerate command.
The disappearance of the previously created elements.
What to do?! I'm shocked ....

I'm kind of at a loss as to the recent questions RE Microsoft programs and Autocad and such. This is a Koodo Mobile forum and we don't deal with Autocad. Whatever issues you are having would be best handled by a forum on Autocad for windows. I can only suggest reinstalling Autocad and seeing if the files work ok on other computers to see if its the file or the program of both

@Bob yeah actually when I saw this thread come up, I thought it was new replies to the one you linked and I recalled from recent history.  I wonder why people come here and ask questions about AutoCAD?

There's an AutoCad mobile app for Windows mobile. Not very highly rated, apparently

Maybe because Windows Mobile itself is not highly rated?

And it's just a viewer.  They might as wel PDF the Cad file and open it that way.
Autocad users are also aware not all users have autocad, so they usually send pdf files anyways

Are you using a SSD? Curious.
