I run Word 97 SR-1.
In "Tools", "Options", "Save", I have checked:
_ Always create backup copy
_Allow background save
_Save Autorecover info every one minute.
_Save Word file as Word Document.
Every minute, I can see a small icon representing a diskette appearing in the right down corner of my Word Document.
This means that the automatic save is being done.
HOWEVER, if, after waiting four minutes and seeing four saves, I restart the machine by pressing the "reset" to simulate a crash, when I go back to my document after reboot , NOTHING has been saved of the text I typed during the four minutes.
Can you help?
