I. To enable auto recovery

To turn on the autorecovery feature and set the frequency of autorecovery backups, use the following procedure.

This feature will automatically create backups based on a specified time interval (default of 5 minutes) of your entire STAAD project, including physical models. In the event of a program crash or if the program is simply closed without saving changes, the program will detect the auto recovery files and prompt you to open from that recovery state when you re-open the associated STAAD model.
  1. From the Start page, select the Configure tool. The Application Configuration dialog opens.
  2. Select the Options tab.
  3. Check the option to Save AutoRever information every X minutes.
  4. (Optional) Type the how often (in minutes) you want the program to save recovery state for open files. The default of 5 minutes is recommended. Intervals shorter than this can degrade performance.
  5. Click OK.
