Is there a utility out there that can backup the following?

- PST (Personal Folders) File Locations or files themselves
- PAB (Personal Address Book) File Locations or files themselves
- Signature Files
- Outlook Shortcut File
- Additional Mailboxes
- Delegate Info
- etc.

If not, is there an easy way of backing up this info.  If not all, is it possible to record the PST & PAB locations from may be a registry key or something?
