How to recover unsaved work in Excel

Sometimes during a busy day at work, you may forget to do a basic Save. We’ve all done it and then panicked thinking you have just lost all your hard work!

The good thing about Excel is that it has a handy way to recover unsaved work; this is called ‘Versions’.

Excel sets up auto-saving, so if you do forget to save your work it is simple to recover it.

All you need to do is go to the ‘File’ menu and select ‘Info’, then click ‘Manage Versions’ and there you have your option to Recover Unsaved Workbooks.

Here you can access the auto-saved versions of your work.
