Windows 7: How do you backup the Outlook calander?

How do you backup the Outlook calander?

I currently use Rainlender as a desktop calander and sync it to Google because if I have to re install my OS I wont lose the google calander dates.

I am thinking though that maybe Outlook calander may be a bit easier to use, but I am wary of using it incase I have to do a fresh install of my OS and as such lose my dates.

I know how to back up the individual folders in Outlook but I dont know how to back up the calander, so can someone please tell me.

I have it across three computers, so a reinstall brings down all of my e-mails, contacts, and
