Microsoft® Outlook 2003 backup
Guidelines to backup and store e-mail messages in Microsoft Outlook 2003
Microsoft Outlook is undoubtedly one of the most popular e-mail applications. Microsoft Outlook can be used for managing tasks, scheduling meetings and appointments, keeping notes, storing contacts; in other words, it provides everything you need to manage your time and efficiently collaborate with your friends, partners and colleagues. Active Outlook users often accumulate thousands of e-mails and contacts over years, and the loss of this information can have devastating and far-going effects. Although there is no way accidents can be prevented, simple measures of precaution and regular backups can save time and money in case of a major system crash or hardware failure.
Given below the tips to backup Microsoft Outlook 2003 messages:
- Manual method
- Use Microsoft Outlook Backup Toolbox
- Find .pst file path
Each Personal Folder file includes all of your Outlook folders, like the Inbox, Calendar, and Contacts. You may have one .pst file and you may also have an extra .pst file that you utilize to archive messages. By backing up these PST files you will be backing up all your Outlook information. After finding the location of .pst file you need to find an outlook.pst file. Copy and paste this file to a Zip disk or other backup source. It will probably be too large to copy to a floppy disk. If you archive your email, be sure to backup the archive.pst file as well.
