How Do You Backup Outlook 2000 Address Books?
Posted on 2001-07-27
With Outlook Express and InBox, you can easily locate the Personal Address Books (PAB files) and Personal Folders (PST files) for mail accounts on your hard drive, which makes backing up your mail easy for those moments when you have to re-install Windows.
Ever since I moved to Outlook 2000 though at work, I'm a bit in the dark as to how to do this. I see Microsoft is still using PST files, but their whole system for address books seems to have become far more complex. Are they being saved in one file? Separate files? In the registry?
My assumption is that it's still one file, but that it's been given a different name. Even if I backup the file, how do I tell Outlook 2000 where to look for it after I re-install? Do I even have a choice of where I put it?
