    This is only for getting backup of your model if something goes wrong. If you save any unwanted thing in your model or deleted any feature and saved it; You can not use undo command. In this case you can open the previously saved *.prt file and save it again.

    To delete these files; use this method.
    1) Set working directory every time.
    2) Use UTILITY ==> OPEN SYSTEM WINDOW. (Command prompt will open)
    3) Type PURGE and press enter. Your Most recent part file will be saved. Rest of all will be deleted permanently in that Directory.
