1. Is there a way to change the location of the autosave file?
2. Save AutoRecover info every: was set to 10 minutes. File not saved had
been worked on for over an hour. If the file is not saved, is not the file
Autorecover save - unsaved pub1(7DE6).pb19 (sample name) in c:\documents and
settings/(user name)\application data\microsoft\publisher deleted in a way
that it can not be recovered?

Did you look in the Temp folder? In Windows Explorer, type %temp% in the
address bar. Find any file with a pub prefix, change the .tmp to .pub. You
may get lucky. If you didn't actually save the file, there probably isn't
anything to recover.

Yes, I did look in the Temp folder and did not see anything. I also looked at
the c:\documents and settings\(user)\application data\Microsoft\Publisher
then repeat the steps the user made and the Autorecover save - unsaved
pub1(7DE6).pb19 went away and a pubcmd.dat appears. However the pubcmd.dat
seems to be a toolbar setting file and has nothing to do with the file not
saved.

The file is gone.

AutoRecover is useful if you have a power failure or similar, the file will be
recovered. In that event the file will turn up in the temp folder after the
recovery. The file will automatically come up when you open Publisher after the
computer failure.

Mary, I think we went down this road once before. If I am reading the OP
correctly he never saved the file at all after working on it for an hour.
Auto save doesn't work unless it has been saved once, correct?

Isn't any auto-recovery file deleted after a successful shut down of
Publisher and is only kept if a crash of Publisher occurs?

I know sometimes Publisher saves a file in the temp folder, it has happened here
many times. I'm not sure why. I realize the poster did not save the file, but
there is always hope...

Well that sounds less than useful! The whole point of Auto save is to
protect against what has happened here, to protect one's work should the
computer fail!
Thanks for the warning!

I've had files recover that have not been saved when we've had a power failure.
You can test this by having a Publisher file open and manually power down.
