How can I recover unsaved PowerPoint on mac? Many users have similar problems, and I am not the exception. Last week, I spent two days in designing my PowerPoint presentations with great shapes, animations, images, tables, word art, basic shapes, stars, etc. Unfortunately, my PowerPoint crashed and I didn’t have extra time to make such a valuable PowerPoint again.
So I did some research for recovering PowerPoint files unsaved or deleted on mac, and finally I recovered my PowerPoint file with an Mac data recovery software. So here I want to share it, actually there are two ways to recover PPT files on Mac, one is to recover unsaved powerpoint, and the other is to recover lost or deleted powerpoint files.
To avoid the lost PowerPoint file from being overwritten, please do not save new data or install Mac Data Recovery software on the hard drive where you lost PowerPoint presentation. Just follow below ways; you will get your unsaved or lost PPT file back.
Microsoft Office has a fantastic feature called AutoSave; that it can automatically save a temporary PPT copy on a periodic basis. The feature is turned on by default and the default save interval is 10 minutes. And AutoRecover, a feature that is available in some Office applications, attempts to recover files automatically in the event of data loss.
So in order to recover unsaved PowerPoint, you have to enable AutoSave or AutoRecover first. If not, just click the Microsoft Office and follow below guide to turn on or change how frequently PowerPoint files are automatically saved:
If your Mac crashes and quit your PPT without saving, next time you open PowerPoint, it will automatically recover the autosaved PowerPoint files. And you can follow next path to find and restore autosaved PPT files in Mac:
The Path: Finder > /Users/ username/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Office/Office X AutoRecovery (X stands for Office version of your PPT).
The amount of new information that the recovered PPT file contains depends on how frequently a Microsoft Office program saves the recovery file. For example, if the recovery file is saved only every 15 minutes, your recovered PPT file won't contain your last 14 minutes of work before the power failure or other problem occurred.
