Taking Advantage of AutoRecover and Background Saves

As all computer users intuitively know, there’s always a risk of losing data when you least expect it. To help reduce the risk of losing data, Word is installed with the AutoRecover and Background Saves features activated. These two features work together to help save your information without interrupting your workflow too much. These features can be summarized as follows:

  • AutoRecover Automatically stores information about an active document that might be useful if your system crashes or if there’s a power failure. By default, Word gathers AutoRecover information every 10 minutes.

  • Background Saves Enables you to continue working in Word while you save a document. A pulsing disk icon appears on the status bar when a background save is taking place.
