This tip is a no-brainer. Do it now! In Word (or Excel or Pow­er­Point), go to File > Options >Save, and set the Save AutoRe­cov­er infor­ma­tionto every 1 minute.

Then, set the AutoRe­cov­er file loca­tion to a loca­tion in your Drop­box (click the image to see my file path).

Voila! Now your AutoRe­cov­er files will be synced up with Drop­box so you can get them back if they dis­ap­pear from your hard drive.
