AutoCAD: How to Open .BAK Files and Using Them – 2 Minute Tuesday

Hey Everybody,

Brandon here and we are kicking off the new year with a new video! I’m excited to be back and making videos after a couple week break to spend the holidays with my family and to relax a bit. This year I’ve got a ton of new content, courses, and some really cool stuff coming for you guys and I hope you will all really enjoy the direction it’s going.

I want to get back to writing more posts on the blog, including some more in-depth training material and content this year so be sure to check back often and to subscribe to the email list to stay up to date with everything in the coming weeks and months.

Now, back to today’s post, we have the first Two Minute Tuesday of 2018 and I’m really excited for it since it’s a super useful tip that everyone using AutoCAD needs to know and will likely need to use at one point or another. In it I walk you through how to open a bak backup file in AutoCAD along with why and when you might need to use your bak file.
