Sketchup “Recovered” file opens as a brand new model

Whenever I open sketchup I can see “recovered” models with the red banner on them but whenever I try to open ANY recovered model it opens a brand new model that is completely blank.

Have you tried zoom extents tool? Shift+Z

Yes. It’s not that issue

Share one of these “recovered” files with us.

Do you have the regular working files for these “recovered” files?

I’m having the same problem. Can’t find the model I worked on today. Only have “recovered” files from over a month ago.

What version of SketchUp? Please complete your forum profile.

Where have you been saving the file you were working on?
