Visual Web Developer: Enable AutoRecover and Set Save Interval

Using AutoRecover can be a real lifesaver, especially if disaster strikes and you lose all of that great coding that you were working on. By default, Visual Web Developer has AutoRecover disabled. To enable AutoRecover and set the save and retention intervals, follow these steps:


1. Open Visual Web Developer.

2. Click Tools and select Options.

3. Go to the bottom lefthand corner and check the Show all settings checkbox.

4. From the left pane, click the arrow next to Environment to expand the selection.

5. Select AutoRecover.

6. On the right, click the Save AutoRecover information every checkbox. Set the desired save interval from the textbox located beneath the checkbox. Set the desired retention interval for the AutoRecover information from the next textbox.

7. Click OK.
