+ 0 Votes MS Backup Utility prouddad97 5 years ago Thanks. I should've mentioned in my original thread that I'm aware of and use the free utility that Microsoft offers. It's a pain in the butt though, because you have to manually click "Backup." Then, the utility backs up only after you shut down Outlook. And since Outlook doesn't always shut completely down even after clicking close, the utility doesn't always backup your data. This is one of the reasons I'm looking into Outlook backup software programs. I already know that they're more convenient because they offer automated backup. What I don't know is, do they do anything that simply copying Outlook folders and files won't do for me?
