Microsoft Word keeps a variety of preference settings related to where it saves, looks for and creates new files. These settings can be adjusted from the Options dialog by following the instructions below
Open your SafeHouse volume. Decide on a location to keep your Word documents. If necessary, create a new directory. You can use this same directory to store your Word recovery files.
Start Microsoft Word.
Select the Options item on the Microsoft Word Tools menu to display the Options property page dialog.
Change the locations of your document and recovery directories to point to your SafeHouse volume. The document directory is the default location where Word will suggest to save your new files. The recovery directory is where Word will create temporary files while you are editing documents to help you recover in the event of a system crash.
