Does anybody have any issues in using Autocad with Drive mapper 
In particular saving files turn files into 0B. And if i look at the file in webversion the actual file is there as previous version. Current version is 0B and the one before is the actual file
Anybody else been using Autocad with Drive mapper

We've had an issue with that too. It seems AutoCAD does multiple file deletes and writes during a typical qsave and that sometimes messes with Drive Mapper's cache updates. We use ShareFile Sync to work around the issue and previous version restore as you've discovered to fix it when we need to with Drive Mapper. We tried the beta version of ShareFile for Windows and that had the same issue as Drive Mapper. If we had a way to delay Drive Mapper cache updates slightly, it may allow AutoCAD to do what it needs to do during a qsave process. Also running quick back to back qsaves using Drive Mapper will cause this issue as well.
