The shorter the time, the Word 2000/XP save the document will be more frequent, and more information will be restored also. In general, we set the time to 1 minute.

After the above settings, all the Word documents which are shut down due to sudden power outage will be shown up when you start it next time. Then you can save them. But before replacing the original document, please verify that the recovery file contains the information you need, and don’t overwrite your original file.
