This tool has been available on the PTC/USER forum for some time but the installation package didn't make it during the migration of data to the PTC Community.
The discussion from the PTC/USER forum was included in the migration and can be found here: Windchill Cache Recovery Tool.
You can't even imagine how many times this tool got me and my users back-in-business.
I tired to recover using this tool but it didn't helped me.
I am looking for the .drw file that are missing from my local workspace and the tool showed me the .asm,prt files.
Any another option to take out the .drw files.
yes it will work.
please go throw the users feedback and the process of retrving the data from the corrupted workspace.
Also, It only works with Pro/E files and not with third party CAD tools like Inventor, right?
My apologies for the delay in responding. In answer to your questions and others:
Just wanted to say thanks (again) for the continued support with cache recovery tool.
I'm currently using it on Windchill 10.2 M030-CPS18 with Creo 3.0 M110 and it works great.
I can't tell you how many times I have used this tool to save someone's work (butt) when things crash on them.
What is the trick for getting this to install on Windows 7? It has a dependency for .net 2.0 which is not installable, as the dependency is supposed to be fulfilled by .net 3.5.
If I just install the .msi directly will it skip the detection, and just rely on the already installed 3.5.1?
Let me check my installer setup. I thought I changed the .NET dependency with the last release. Odd that it wouldn't have detected your 3.5 and accepted that. Of course, the next question becomes, what version of .NET should I target? The current is 4.6.2.
Glad you were able to get around the issue.
