Every week I export my Outlook.pst to another location for safe backup.  This is done by going to :

File
- Importand Export
--Export to a file
---Personal Folder File .pst
----select Personal Folder and check Subfolders
-----save in (another location)

I also do this with Public Folders that I have up on my Exchange Server.  These steps seem to be almost identical in both Outlook 2000 and 2003.  I do use both but most people are still loaded with Outlook 2000.  Origional location is in
C:\Documents and Settings\administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Personal Folders.pst.


I need a solution to automaticaly do this every week.  Is there any way to do this with the Outlook 2000 and 2003. Perhaps with a bat file or somthing like it in Scheduled Tasks?  Or is there an application that is user friendly that would allow mw to do this?  Or is the backup my only option?

You can use some sort of macro program.  I prefer using macro express, but it costs about $40.  Still, there are other free macro programs you can use.

Ahh,  thanx.

I'll work with this Macro Express a little and see how it works.  This may prove to be usefull for some other things I'd like to try using macros with.
