Backing up pst file in Outlook

cheyenne2, Apr 22, 9:22pm
Can I then take that .pst file and load on another PC and have an exact copy of all my current Outlook? Thanks in advance.

Thanks tp, I was going to back the file up and then copy on to the yet to be purchased new Laptop

and the newer versions of office keep it in an outlook folder in the documents folder.
Plus I tend to rename old files rather than overwrite - just in case

Thanks to all, appreciate the help.

outlook PST files keep a lot more than just messages in them ignore that 'advise' all your contacts, appointments, tasks, & notes are kept in the pst file.

If you have the old and new machines both operating I suggest using windows easy transfer to get everything across.
