How to backup emails and notes in Microsoft Outlook


If you use Microsoft Outlook and have lots of emails saved in different folders, there is a way to back up those emails. You could always save them as text documents, of just create a folder with the same title in the Windows Explorer. Then all you have to do is copy and paste the emails from each folder in Outlook to the folder you created in the Windows Explorer. This method also works with notes, I’ve done this plenty of times. Every so many weeks I will update my backup folders with the emails I’ve added to my folders in Outlook 2007.

As for calendars, I use Google Calendar, and sync it up with outlook, and my iPod Touch. Of course with no Wifi, I’ve been forced to sync my Touch up with Outlook. The advantage to using Google Calendar is that if I have to reinstall Microsoft Office I don’t have to redo my calendar.

This is a pretty simple method, of course like I said saving emails as text documents is just as good.
