Hi, you can export your outlook folders, contacts and calander to a file.
Copy that file to a external hdd

Then reinstall windows, office, then add your pop account, then import your files again.

How to export .pst file data

If you want to back up only some of your Outlook data, you can create a new backup .pst file of only the data that you want to save. This is also known as exporting .pst file data. For example, you might want to use this section if you have important information in only some folders and you have other, less important items in much larger folders. You can export only the important folders or contacts and omit folders like Sent Mail.


In Outlook 2010:

Follow these steps to export a specific folder:
  1. Click the File tab.
  2. In the Outlook Options window, click Advanced.
  3. Click Export.
  4. In the Import and Export Wizard, click Export to a file, and then click Next.
  5. Click Outlook Data File (.pst), and then click Next.
  6. Select the folder to export, and then click Next.
  7. Click Browse, and then select the location where you want the new .pst file to be saved.
  8. In the File Name box, type the name that you want to use for the new .pst file, and then click OK.
  9. Click Finish.
In an earlier version of Outlook:
  1. Open Outlook.
  2. On the File menu, click Import And Export. If the menu item is not available, move your pointer over the chevrons at the bottom of the menu, and then click Import and Export.
  3. Click Export To File, and then click Next.
  4. Click Personal Folder File (.pst), and then click Next.
  5. Click the folder to which you want to export the .pst file, and then click Next.
  6. Click Browse, and then select the location where you want the new .pst file to be saved.
  7. In the File Name box, type the name that you want to use for the new .pst file, and then click OK.
  8. Click Finish.
Note Folder design properties include permissions, filters, description, forms, and views. If you export items from one .pst file to another, no folder design properties are maintained.
How to import .pst file data into Outlook

You can use the backup copy of your .pst file to restore your Outlook data if the original .pst file is damaged or lost. Everything that is saved in the .pst file is returned to Outlook.


In Outlook 2010:

Follow these steps to restore, or import, your data into Outlook:
  1. Click the File tab.
  2. In the Open category, click Import.
  3. In the Import and Export Wizard, click Import from another program or file, and then click Next.
  4. Click Outlook Data File (.pst), and then click Next.
  5. Type the path and the name of the .pst file that you want to import, or click Browse to choose the file to import.

    Note Under Options, it is recommended that you click Do not import duplicates, unless you want the imported information to replace or duplicate items that are already in Outlook.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Select the folder that you want to import. To import everything in the .pst file, select the top of the hierarchy.

    Note The top folder (usually Personal Folders, Outlook Data File or your email address) is selected automatically. Include subfolders is selected by default. All folders under the folder selected will be imported
  8. Click Finish.

In earlier versions of Outlook:

Follow these steps to restore, or import, your data into Outlook:
  1. If the .pst file that you want to import is stored on a removable device, such as a floppy disk, a portable hard disk drive, a CD-ROM, a magnetic tape cassette, or any other storage medium, insert or connect the storage device, and then copy the .pst file to the hard disk drive of the computer.

    When you copy the .pst file, make sure that the Read-Only attribute is not selected. If this attribute is selected, you might receive the following error message:The specified device, file, or path could not be accessed. It may have been deleted, it may be in use, you may be experiencing network problems, or you may not have sufficient permission to access it. Close any application using this file and try again.



    If you receive this error message, clear the Read-Only attribute, and then copy the file again.
  2. Open Outlook.
  3. On the File menu, click Import And Export. If the command is not available, move the pointer over the chevrons at the bottom of the menu, and then click Import and Export.
  4. Click Import from another program or file, and then click Next.
  5. Click Personal Folder File (.pst), and then click Next.
  6. Type the path and the name of the .pst file that you want to import, and then click Next.
  7. Select the folder that you want to import. To import everything in the .pst file, select the top of the hierarchy.
  8. Click Finish.
How to transfer Outlook data from one computer to another computer

You cannot share or synchronize .pst files between one computer and another computer. However, you can still transfer Outlook data from one computer to another computer.

Use the instructions in the "How to make a backup copy of a .pst file" section to copy the .pst file to a CD or DVD-ROM or other portable media, or copy the file to another computer over a LAN/WAN link.

Note Connecting to .pst files over LAN/WAN links is not supported, and problems connecting to .pst files over such links can occur. See the following article for more information:

297019
(Limits to using personal folders (.pst) files over LAN and WAN links )
Personal folder files are unsupported over a LAN or over a WAN link

You might also want to create a new, secondary .pst file that is intended for transferring data only. Save the data that you want to transfer in this new .pst file and omit any data that you do not want to transfer. If you need to make a secondary .pst file to store data for transfer between two different computers, or for backup purposes, use the following steps.


In Outlook 2010:

  1. Click the File tab.
  2. In the Info category, click the Account Settings button, and then click Account Settings.
  3. In the Account Settings window, click the Data Files tab.
  4. Click Add, click Outlook data file (.pst), and then click OK.
  5. Type a unique name for the new pst. file. For example, type Transfer.pst, and then click OK.
  6. Close Outlook.

In earlier versions of Outlook:

  1. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Outlook Data File.
  2. Type a unique name for the new .pst file. For example, type Transfer.pst, and then click OK.
  3. Type a display name for the Personal Folders file, and then click OK.
  4. Close Outlook.
Follow these steps to copy an existing .pst file:
  1. Use the instructions in the "How to make a backup copy of a .pst file" section to make a backup copy of the .pst file that you want to transfer. Make sure that you copy the backup .pst file to a CD-ROM or to another kind of removable media.
  2. Copy the backup .pst file from the removable media to the second computer.
  3. Follow the steps in the "How to import .pst file data into Outlook" section to import the .pst file data into Outlook on the second computer.
