By default, when working in MyOffice Spreadsheet, copies of the documents being edited are autosaved, including documents that have never been saved by the user. If the application crashes, when the application is reopened, the user can save the backed up documents as separate files or replace the original documents with copies.

Backup copies of documents are saved for one month and then automatically deleted.

Autorecovery of documents is not performed when working in the Cloud.

Configure autorecovery of documents

By default, autorecovery of documents is enabled. The data for auto-recovery is saved every 5 minutes.

To change the settings, follow these steps:

1.In the Command menu, select File > Autorecovery > Autorecovery Settings.

2.In the Autorecovery Settings window:

To disable or enable autorecovery of documents, uncheck or check the Save data for recovery every box.

To change the interval for saving document backups, specify it manually, using the switch, the ↓ and ↑ keyboard keys or the mouse wheel. The switching step is 1 minute.

If you want to disable saving backups for one or more documents currently open, check the boxes in the Don't save for following files list. This list does not show documents that have never been manually saved.

If you want to copy the path to the folder where the backed up copies of documents are stored, click the autorecovery_settings_copy button.

3.Click Apply.

Document recovery

If the work with documents was finished incorrectly, when you re-enter the application, the Autorerovery dialog box opens with “Files you were working on have been restored” message. Click Open in this window.

Backed up copies of documents will open in new application windows.

To save copies, follow the steps below for each copy:

1.Run the Save As command in one of the following ways:

In the notification bar that appears below the Toolbar, click Save As.

In the File menu, click Save As.

2.In the Save As window:

If you want to save the copy as a separate file, select the folder where you want to save it, specify the file type and name, and click Save.

If you want to replace the original file with a copy, select the file and click Save.

If you want to delete a copy, click Delete in the notification bar below the Toolbar.

Recovered Files pane

If any backed up documents were not saved or deleted as described above, open the Recovered Files pane.

To do this, do one of the following:

In the command menu, select File > Autorecovery > Recovered Files.

On the Sidebar, click side_panel_recovered_files Recovered Files.

To open, save, or delete a document backup copy, follow the steps below:

1.Hover the cursor over the name of the copy and click the side_panel_recovered_files_menu button.

2.In the drop-down list, select the desired command.

You can also open a document backup copy by double-clicking its name in the list.

If you want to delete all copies of the documents, click Delete All.
