Tip 5: Understanding AutoRecover

If you’ve used computers for any length of time, you’ve probably lost some work. You forgot to save a file, or maybe the power went out and your unsaved work was lost. Or maybe you were working on something and didn’t think it was important, so you closed it without saving — and later realized that it was important. The AutoRecover feature in Excel can make these types of “doh!” moments less frequent.

As you work in Excel, your work is periodically saved, automatically. It happens in the background, so you don’t even know that it’s happening. You have the ability to access these autosaved versions of your work — even workbooks that you never explicitly saved.

This feature consists of two components:

→ Versions of a workbook are saved automatically, and you can view them.

→ Workbooks that you close without saving are saved as draft versions.
