This nice freebie from Microsoft creates scheduled backups of your Outlook information.


Are you a backup person? I am. I want copies of everything I own spread across my entire personal network. Manually backing up and restoring Outlook has always been a pain. Remembering to do so is even worse.

Microsoft has released a free download to help us with backing up and restoring our Outlook information.

After installing the program, you can find the new plug-in called backup under the FILE menu in Outlook. Clicking this will walk you through the process.

Backup those files!
