Check the autosave settings for the location and you may find anything over there.

Hello Raheman,
That is OK, but what is the reason behind missing the whole drawing.
Thanks.

Have you changed the AutoCAD default file save location?
Do you have the Set System Variable: REMEMBERFOLDERS to 0?
Curious if the Startup folder is different from where the project is actually getting saved.

Hi Experts,
I finally find out the solution myself. It was the virtual memory setting in windows 7. I increased the virtual memory and now seems everything OK.
Thanks.
