I am working on a very large Excel workbook as well as other workbooks. The data on the very large workbook should be read-only anyway (but I would still need to edit it to filter and such) so I want to turn autorecover off for that particular file, but leave it on for other files. How can I do this?


From here: http://ccm.net/faq/34034-excel-disable-the-autorecover-feature-for-a-specific-workbook

  1. Open the notebook you wish to disable Autorecover on.
  2. Go to File > Options.
  3. In the Save section, under Autorecover exceptions for: click Disabled Autorecover for this workbook only
