    My supervisor and a coworker has experienced this problem, I have not. The issue is that it seems that Excel 2010 sometimes crashes by closing without warning, and when Excel is re-opened, there are no Recovery Files. I was wondering if anyone had similar experience and if you had any ideas what could be causing it:

    Computer background:
    1) Running Windows XP (we're scheduled to go to 7 some time this year)
    2) 3 or 4 GB of RAM
    3) We had Office 2007 last year, but was upgraded to Office 2010 in November.

    24 worksheets Open! Plus what ever else the user had open..Try 23 and see if it happens again;)

    Sorry to sound snarky but there are limits (RAM for one). The pagefile has a lot keep up with in the 24 spreadsheet scenerio.

    Yea, I know what you mean. We are considering upping his RAM but I think he's already at 4GB so short of moving him to 64-bit Windows (which nobody has), I guess the only solution is for him to keep his open Excel count to something smaller...

    If nobody else has any ideas, I'll close this thread by end of day...

    Thanks draceplace, our pagefiles are set to "System managed", but currently my pagefile is set to 3GB (same as my RAM). I wonder if a system-managed pagefile can grow as needed.

    In any case, he's going to request more RAM:
    I'm closing this thread as I do believe it's a memory issue and our corporate Windows 7 upgrade is just around the corner.
