This issue can occur due to various reasons, such as:

OneDrive account sign-in issues - Ensure that you have the latest version of OneDrive installed and sign in with the correct account credentials.

OneDrive cache corruption - Clearing the OneDrive cache and resetting the OneDrive client can resolve the issue.

Conflicting third-party software - Some security software or firewalls can interfere with the OneDrive client, disabling the AutoSave feature. Try disabling or uninstalling such software temporarily and check if the issue persists.

OneDrive syncing issues - Sometimes, OneDrive can experience syncing issues that can cause the AutoSave feature to turn off. To resolve this, try stopping and restarting the OneDrive client, or resetting OneDrive sync.

If none of the above steps resolves the issue, you can try reinstalling the OneDrive client.


Please check on the following:


1. AutoSave setting under office application

2. You are not saving file to OneDrive or SharePoint Online

3. You are using a supported format (e.g. docx)

4. Security features in Excel is off

5. Repair office when necessary
