Backup and Recovery Options
Keep in mind that searches look in subfolders as well as the current folder, so if you start
your search in the Documents library or Documents folder, your search scope can include
all files in your carefully organized folder structure—and all those disorganized ones as well.
Filter your documents to narrow the possibilities and open the preview pane, and you can
quickly find the document you want.
All of the search and display options that we describe for the Open dialog box also work in
Windows Explorer, allowing you to find that document you’re looking for without opening
an Office program.
INSIDE OUT Windows XP users: Install Windows Search
Search capabilities in Windows have come a long way since the much-derided search
puppy showed up in Windows XP. If you still use Windows XP, all is not lost (pun
intended), however. Installing Windows Search 4.0, a free program from Microsoft,
brings many of the modern search capabilities to your older operating system. For

Backup and Recovery Options
Throughout this chapter, we focus on saving documents. It’s wise to periodically save a
document you’re working on by pressing Ctrl+S, but unfortunately, that doesn’t always
happen. To prevent accidental loss of your documents, Office 2010 includes AutoRecover and
autosave, options that can save your bacon (as well as your document) in situations when
Office closes before you save the file. This can occur if you experience a power outage, a
program closes unexpectedly (put another way: crashes), or you close the Office program
without first saving your document.
When AutoRecover is enabled, it automatically saves a copy of your document at an
interval you set. (Note that it saves a copy; it does not overwrite your previously saved file.)
Autosave saves a copy of the document you’re working on if you close the Office program
without saving.
