Automatically backup Microsoft Outlook PST files

Microsoft Outlook Personal Folders Backup is a tool for Microsoft Outlook 2002, 2003 and 2007 that provides a quick and easy way to automatically back up the Outlook information of your choice to your hard disk or network server or share.

Microsoft Outlook stores all your Outlook data in a Personal Folders file (.PST) which contains all of your Outlook folders, including the Inbox, Calendar, and Contacts. You can have a single .PST file (usually called Personal Folders), but you can also have an additional .PST file that you use for archiving. Using the Personal Folders Backup tool, you can back up any or all of these .PST files and configure how often you wish to back them up.

After you back up your information, you can copy these duplicates of your Outlook data to a removable media such as a CD or DVD. The backup files are exact copies of the original files. You can also receive periodic reminders to back up your files.

To use Microsoft Outlook Personal Folders Backup follow these steps:

1. Open File menu on Microsoft Outlook and click on Backup

2. Click the Options button.


3. Select the PST files you want to backup, set the backup location and frequency of backup.


4. Click OK.
