Features

<p>OpenOffice.org will automatically recover data if the program or computer unexpectedly crashes. This feature, known as AutoRecovery, is on by default and has a default save interval of fifteen minutes. AutoSave, a previous version of this feature, was off by default.

Save Interval

The user can edit the interval at which AutoRecovery creates back ups. To do so, open the "Tools" menu and select "Options." From there, expand the "Load/Save" section and click on "General." Placing a check mark next to "Save AutoRecovery Every" allows you to increase or decrease from the default interval.

Backups

<p>OpenOffice.org saves AutoRecovery data to a folder on the user's computer. You can edit this folder by opening the "Tools" menu, selecting "Options," selecting "OpenOffice.org," choosing "Paths" and then choosing "Backups."

Considerations

Users who type long documents quickly may wish to set the interval to one minute while 15 minutes may suffice for others. When editing the AutoRecovery options, the user can also place a check next to "Always Create a Backup Copy" to instruct the program to save to the original file and make an additional backup.
