Windows 7: Can you Back Up folders in Outlook?

Can you Back Up folders in Outlook?

I have created a couple of folders in Outlook that I use to save important emails in, but I want to know if there is a way to have those folders duplicated somehow with my user folder so that the emails can be backed up.

Thread seems to have slipped through the cracks

There are several different methods of backing up email data from Outlook, these depend on several settings

Which version of outlook?
Are you using IMAP or POP3 (or Hotmail/Live account)?
Do you also need to backup contacts / Calendar / Notes Etc ?

If you can let us know more information there should be a way to suit your needs

I have to go out now but will check back later

I'm not sure which version of Outlook you're using but, in Outlook 2010, this is the method to back up folders independently of your main user folder:


Click on the "File" tab then Select "Open" then click "Import":

Select "Export to a file" then click "Next":

Select "Outlook Data File (.pst)" then click "Next":

Select the folder you wish to backup (you can only select a single folder and it's subsequent sub-folders so, if you have more than one folder you want to back up and it's not a sub-folder of your initial backup folder, you'll have to do this entire routing for each separate folder):

Select the name and destination of your backup and then click "Finish":

I parenthetically mentioned the following, above, but it is something to keep in mind: you can only select a single folder and it's subsequent sub-folders so, if you have more than one folder you want to back up and it's not a sub-folder of your initial backup folder, you'll have to do this entire routing for each separate folder.
