    Daylight Saving Time 2007 — MS Outlook logon script


    by handy_9999 ·

    I’m writing a script to backup local MS Outlook .pst files before pushing my DST update script.

    The script reads the registry for file locations and backs-up the pst file(s) to the profile %username%\my documents\dst2007

    My reasoning is that if you have a backup of the user’s appointments, you’ll have more than one shot at getting the calendar updated correctly.

    I’m looking for beta-testers that might find this vbs script useful.
