Backing up Your Archive Folders.
Backing up your archive folders will prevent you from losing messages in the event of a problem with your computer's hard drive.
- Microsoft Outlook will need to be closed before you start this procedure.
Using Microsoft Windows Explorer navigate to the folder where your archive folder resides.
An alternate location may be:
- C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.
Open your writable CD Drive and put in a blank CD.
Then right-click the file you would like to back up, select “Send To,” and then select the writable CD Drive that contains the blank CD.
|Open My Computer or Windows Explorer and double left click the drive you sent the file to.|
|Left click on the file tab and then select “Write these files to CD”.|
|Give your CD a name such as 12-13-08_Backup.|
Store your CD in a secure location.
