Windows 7: Backup of pst files in Office 2007

Backup of pst files in Office 2007

What is the most effective way to automatically create a regular backup of pst files in Windows 7, Office 2007? I see there is a backup download from Microsoft for XP and VIsta which allowed you to schedule regular backups of pst files but I don't see anything for Windows 7. I don't print all emails and as such it is essential that I don't lose any.

I currently create duplicates and archive one set every 2 weeks. The archive file is backed up by a Backup program, but I am wondering if Microsoft has any features similar to the archive feature where you simply backup the pst file, thus saving email, contacts, calendar at once.

The Microsoft PST backup tool is a good utility. Did you try installing it? I was under the assumption it works with Windows 7. You can also just copy the Outlook folder or .PST files to an external drive as a backup.

Slightly off topic, however.....Just in case you are not aware of these links pertaining to Outlook.
