Microsoft Excel cannot save AutoRecover Info

Original Title: "Autorecover hangs up program"
I am in the middle of working on a spreadsheet (Excel 2008) and suddenly a message pops up that says, "Microsoft Excel cannot save Autorecover Info...,etc" There is no way to make this message go away. Hitting OK doesn't help. Hitting "don't show again" doesn't help. All spreadsheet menu items are grayed out. Can I get rid of this with force quitting and losing two hours of tedious work?
