To access the AutoRecover version of your Excel workbook, select File > Open, then scroll down to the Recover Unsaved Workbooks section and choose your file.
What If My Version of Excel Doesn’t Have AutoSave?
If you don’t have an AutoSave option in your version of Excel, or you don’t want to use OneDrive or SharePoint to back up your files, you can also use third-party software such as Google Drive or Dropbox to regularly back up your data.
Before using these services, think carefully about potential security and space. If you’re backing up confidential information, there’s an inherent risk of a breach. If you’re looking to save documents for work, consult your workplace’s IT department, if available, for solutions they’ve vetted.
Additionally, any backup service will have a limited amount of space, and you’ll probably want to use it to backup other files as well. More room is available, but you’ll have to subscribe to it. Look at your needs carefully before signing on to any backup service.
