OpenOffice.org: Change the AutoRecovery Save Interval

Posted May 7, 2007 by Rob Rogers in Windows

AutoRecovery can be a real lifesaver if disaster strikes and you lose the document you were working on. By default, OpenOffice.org saves AutoRecovery information every 15 minutes. You can change this interval to be more or less frequent by following these steps:


1. Open one of the OpenOffice.org applications (Writer, Calc, Base, or Impress).

2. Click Tools and select Options.

3. In the left pane, expand Load/Save.

4. On the right, under Save, make sure the Save AutoRecovery every checkbox is checked. Input the desired value for the save interval into the corresponding textbox.

5. Click OK.

The new interval will be used by all of your OpenOffice.org applications.
