    Office Auto Save location - Home areas?

    Are there any disadvantages to relocating the save location for Office Auto Recovery files from the local C:\ drive (Which gets wiped on restart) to a user's network area? i.e. do they delete if a document is saved correctly? Because the last thing I want is thousands of AutoRecovery files clogging up the network!

    I would be interested to know if this could also be done for OpenOffice..

    It should be absolutely fine. I've done this with Office 2000, XP and 2003 versions using Ork Tools. I believe 2007 is a bit more intelligent and saves autorecovery files in My Documents.
