Free PST Backup Tool

None to mention exclusively about the important of backing up PST. But do you know that Microsoft provides a free tool for you to backup your PST. It has awesome feature of saving your backup settings and reminder. Do you need one? Then follow the below steps

Note: Do not worry that Microsoft says the tool is compatible with Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2010. We have a fix for it to work in Outlook 2010.

  • Double-click the pfbackup.exe program file on your hard disk to start the setup program.
  • Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation.

Outlook 2003 and 2007

  • Start Outlook.
  • On the File menu, choose Backup.

Bug: I noticed that even after successfully installing the setup, ‘Backup’ option doesn’t show up. In that case, I tried installing again with Outlook closed and finally got the option!

  • To change the backup options, such as which .PST files to back up, click Options.
  • Choose the PST files and specify the location.
  • Click Ok and Save Backup option to backup the PST

Outlook 2010
