I can no longer save my drawing file - keep getting error fault message.

Any suggestions? I have tried PAKing, but that didn't work either.

1. Layer / Layer Sets, and save out all layers.
2. Backup - File/Purge/File/Save As AEC.

Hopefully one of these will get all you info saved out.

Is the Repair Tool something that's optional to install or is there a shortcut key? I am running and do not have that as a option - screenshot attached.
