Backing up Outlook

Can someone point me to a definitive list of all files required to fully back up my Outlook environment?

I imagine all you need is to backup all the files in the folder:

 C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

Make sure Outlook is not running during this.

i don't think this will take signatures, nicknames, account settings etc. only the pst file.

The nicknames are to be found in an .nk2 file in the same folder. The account settings is to be found in the registry.  There are different methods to define signatures and so the location changes.

Backrex will do it: http://www.backsettings.com/outlook-backup.html but the demo (free) version won't restore signatures. If you've got a lot to do then the full version is $US29.95.
