I am just writing some book and there was decided to use MS Word…I want to strongly encourage you to use very often shortcut CTRL + S and change autorecover seetings (default 30min) in my case it was more than A4 page lost…when deadline is coming.
- Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Word Options.
- Click Save.
- Select the Save AutoRecover information every x minutes check box.
- In the minutes list, specify how often you want the program to save your data and the program state.TIP The amount of new information that the recovered file contains depends on how frequently a Microsoft Office program saves the recovery file. For example, if the recovery file is saved only every 15 minutes, your recovered file won’t contain your last 14 minutes of work before the power failure or other problem occurred.
- Optionally, you can change the location (specified in the AutoRecover file location box) where the program automatically saves a version of files you work on.
For me, it was a bad/good lesson.
