I running windows Xp and running visio 2007. I had a power outage, and when I open the visio drawing it said it was corupt and could not open it. Prior to the  power outage the auto recovery saved the drawing sevreal times. The problem I have is that I can't locate the auto recovery drawing. I have no idea where viso stores the files and what the nameing covention is. Also if I am able to find the file, what is the recover process. Thanks so much for you help
