Windows 7: Application Data in Library Question

Application Data in Library Question

Can application data, such as the personal folders in Outlook be put in a library? I do not see in the file structure something like "C;/User/Appdata/Outlook" Or am I missing the library concept?

Hi there

Ghat you can do is download file pfbackup.exe from the office download section (note Office checks genuine validation before download). This creates an extra function in the Outlook file menu when you are displaying the Inbox : ==> BACKUP.

This program makes it easy to backup / archive Outlook email folder.

In outlook you can then use this to save / re-open your outlook folders .

For example save in D:\email_backup.pst

Now THIS file can be added to your library.

cheers

Problem with this

I downloaded the file and I got the message that I do not have some older copies of Office on the machine. I do have Office Student & Home 2007 and Outlook 2007 installed, all properly authenticated by MS.

For years I have been frustrated by the difficulty of backing up and moving Outlook files. Maybe I should just go to a other mail client such as or Thunderbird.
