How to change AutoRecover interval in Office 2007 and 2010?

Auto Recover is one of the useful features of the Microsoft Office 2007 applications. It involves saving all the data in the Office 2007 application after a specific time interval so that it is recovered in case there is a power outage or a system crash. All your work or data in the Office application is saved automatically after that specific time interval. This feature keeps you from losing work you have done. By default, this AutoRecover interval is set to 10 minutes in all the Office 2007 applications. If you change AutoRecover interval in Office 2007 to less than 10 minutes such as after every 5 minutes, you will be able to save your work or data frequently. It will prove very helpful if you are facing problems in the power supply or your operating system.

The option to change AutoRecover interval in Office 2007 is offered for every application. Here we will use the example of Word 2007. Follow these steps to change AutoRecover interval in Office 2007:

1. Click the Microsoft Office ButtonButton image  

2. Click on the Word Options. The Word options dialog box will appear. Select Save from the Menu.

3. Check the box for "Save Auto Recovery Information every" and Select how often you would like Word to save the data for Auto Recover.

Note: You should not set the time to a very short time interval. Remember that when working on larger documents don't set the AutoRecover to a very short time interval such as 1or 2 minutes because that may begin to slow down the computer.
