Windows 7: PST saving/backup question Outlook 2013

PST saving/backup question Outlook 2013

I've recently had quite a few problems with my system and backing data up, and on reviewing various areas of my computer I have the following question:

When .pst files/data are saved (drive:\Users\<username>\Documents\Outlook Files) is the date in the 'date modified' column current - i.e. would it show today's date as I am currently using Outlook?

I ask this because the latest date I can locate in the above file is some 4 weeks ago, and If I review this .pst file in a .pst viewer, it obviously doesn't hold a current reflection of my outlook files, which I would have presumed - or am I totally wrong and missing something, and if so, where then are my current .pst files being stored?

My Outlook 2013 pst.data file does show the last Outlook was used. As far as I know the location you mention is the only place Outlook data files are stored.
If your Outlook is part of Office you could try repairing it. Open Control Panel, select Programs & Features, scroll down to MS Office, Right Click on it & select Change, this will open a couple of Repair options for you to try.

Thanks for the response Ranger4. I've run the repair option, but the .pst files are still showing the same.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks again for the response Ranger4. I've sorted it now.
Since changing to Office 2013 Outlook, it would seem, is now filing the .pst files in a different place: C:\Users\Username\Documents\Outlook Files\email address.pst

Outlook 2013 email security question
Checking a web based email (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail) with Outlook is as safe as doing it using the web browser (Firefox, etc)? I know that using the browser is safe since the connection is encrypted, but I'm unsure about Outlook. Thanks for your feedback.
