Could you clarify what you mean by path backup files?



you can set where LibreOffice backups if

ToolsOptionsLoad/SaveGeneralAlways create backup copy is enabled.

This is explained in this FAQ.


  • this is not a path for user's backup...
  • it is not specific to Calc

(No guarantee of any kind! I did not test! Nor do I refer to written information!)
You may have to go

'Tools' > 'LibreOffice' > 'Advanced' > 'Open Expert Configuration'

and enter the serach word backup.

Partly bad answer, partly a misunderstanding.

I need modify the path of autosaving information of the files. The default path is c:\users\xxx\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\4\user\backup and I need to modify with a UNC path.

'Save AutoRecovery information' and 'Always create a backup copy' are very different things.
