Video: Automatically save and recover Office files

Your browser does not support video. Install Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash Player, or Internet Explorer 9.

Regularly saving the file is the surest way to preserve the work that you have done, but sometimes a Microsoft Office program closes before you can save changes to a file that you are working on. Although you cannot always prevent problems such as these, you can take steps to protect your work when an Office program closes abnormally.
