I would like to set AutoSave to save files on my local machine, rather than OneDrive.

 

How can I set this up?

 

TIA

Hi @Badger51,

 

As far as I know, you can't autosave as seamlessly on your local drive as if you were using OneDrive.

But there's a way to save the auto-recover every minute as apposed to the default 10 minutes. Go to: File > Options > Save and adjust the settings to suits your needs. You will still need to save the document when you close it though. This will only help you if your computer crash/power outage.
