I'm not sure why I let Excel save auto recover information. It either doesn't work, or takes longer to recover than it would take to re-create the lost data.

Question: Has "Microsoft Office Excel is currently recovering your documents" ever, in the history of mankind, been a true statement?

Excel frowns on editing VBA while code is running in Excel 2007.
