if is so intrusive.  I am afraid to close excel in fear that I have to open again.

That might be an over reaction. It's actually a very good service. Can you describe more what you view as "intrusive." It may be that you're having an atypical experience.

 

It's virtually transparent in my experience, not intrusive at all. And I really like the fact that all my files (not only Microsoft Office related) are backed up.

@mathetes , I agree with the advantages of transparent backups. Although sometimes, I just want to open a file to work on it and close without Excel autosaving. How can I make it read my mind?  

@TheAntony 

 

You can turn auto-save off for any given sheet. I sometimes do that on a particularly large file, where that feature (otherwise desirable) slows things down.

@TheAntony 

In opposite, you may switch it off by default

and switch on only for some files
