Most useful email backup program is 'MailStore' where rather than normal way backup it works by importing email into its own store. Other method is:
- In Windows Explorer go to your Outlook folder, highlight all files ending in ".pst" then select edit/copy from the menu to copy the selected files. Now open the folder where you want to put your backup copies in Windows Explorer, edit/paste from the menu to paste your .pst files to the backup location.
Your backup copy of outlook data is now in place, when you need it ready to be restored.
