Outlook 2010 pst restoration question

Hi Team,

I am about to reinstall win 7. If i point outlook to my saved .pst file, will it retain all notes, rss feeds and contacts, or is it safer to export notes,contacts and rss feeds beforehand.

All the best.

It should do, but you know the old saying - better to be safe than sorry.

As your data is obviously important to you, I'd be inclined to use both methods you mention.

That way, you stand less chance of losing anything and you will be able to satisfy yourself that both or one of your methods does the job.
