Although it's not hard to remember to click the Save button every few minutes while working, you can also have Microsoft Project remember for you. You can set Microsoft Project to automatically and regularly save your file every few minutes. This can decrease your risk of losing recent work.
To have Microsoft Project automatically save active and open projects, follow these steps:
1 Click Tools, Options.
2 In the Options dialog box, click the Save tab.
3 Under Auto Save, select the Save Every check box, and then enter how often (in minutes) you want Microsoft Project to automatically save your active or open projects.
4 If you want Microsoft Project to save only the active project, select the Save Active Project Only option.
5 If you want Microsoft Project to save the active project along with any other open projects, select the Save All Open Project Files option.
