Thanks Jan,

Vic Birdi, please do not post the same question in different areas as this can get very confusing.

Please see your (original) post as JMH has posted an answer(?) for you.

Thanks

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.

Hummm. So much to backup a Outlook.pst file.
All I do is go to my Outlook Directory on C: and copy it to my backup drive and number it. 001.
Then when I restore my hd I just copy the latest back of Outlook.pst and copy it to to my C: Drive under Outlook directory.

His point is that the ability is there; not whether it's easier or not.
