If you're getting an error message that your autosave folder is invalid, there are a few things you can do to fix the problem.
First, try restarting Excel. This will sometimes clear up the problem on its own.
If that doesn't work, you can try changing the location of your autosave folder. To do this, go to File > Options > Save. Under "Save workbooks", look for the "Default file location" field. Here, you can enter a new path for your autosave folder.
