Microsoft Outlook 2007 Backup Tool

Before I had Windows XP, and I was able to see the backup option under file in outlook 2007. Now I have switched to Windows 7, and installed the same outlook tool for 2007 in windows 7 64bit, I can't see the backup option under File.

Thanks alot. I was thinking of backing up to my USB drive but I thought I should try the auto backup feature in 2007 outlook. Looks like it's not compatible with windows 7. I just changed computers, and I having a hard time to upgrade all drivers and software.

I have already tried that link. But why doesn't the "Personal Folder Backup utility" show backup option under "File" tab in windows 7.

Solved, see below:
In Outlook 2007, choose Tools | Trust Center and choose Add-ins from the
navigation list on the left.
At the bottom of the Add-ins screen, under Manage, select COM Add-ins and
click Go.
On the COM Add-ins dialog, click Add and navigate to the C:\Program
Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE12\ADDINS folder. Select outbak.dll and click
OK. When you return to the COM Add-ins dialog, you should see a new entry,
Outlook Backup Addin, with its check box checked.
Click OK to close the COM Add-ins dialog.
