Excel includes an AutoSave feature that periodically saves your file as you work on it. AutoSave does not save data in a separate file; therefore, the AutoSave feature does not prevent file corruption. However, AutoSave protects your data in the event that Excel unexpectedly quits. When you start Excel, AutoSave is not running by default.
