I had the need to rely on Wordís autorecover function and found that it failed to work as expected. I then looked into it, and it seems to not be saving any autorecover info at all.

I set it to save autorecover info every 1 minute, and Iíve looked in the autorecover file location, and there is nothing there. (I set Windows to show hidden files too). I also tried endtasking Word without saving the document, and the autorecover pane does not even open.

I also tried the same tests with Excel, and got the same failures.

Any ideas?
