Need help to: write a script that copies, and renames them to username_date_outlookarchive.pst and then copies them to a shared folder on the server so backup exec can grab them; configure to run  a script to delete the archives after backupexec is complete.

Who's going to run the script to copy the archives? Each user or an administrator?

On a user logoff script or user logon script you can run this batch file.
COPY "%UserProfile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst" "\\Server\Share\Backup\%UserName%_%Date:/=.%_OutlookArchive.pst"

VBS.

The deleting part you'll have to get a script to run after backupexec.

DOS batch:
Del /q "\\server\share\backup\*.pst
ServerFolder="\\Server\Share\Backup"
 
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
 
File=WshShell.SpecialFolders("AppData") & "\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.Dat"
BackupFile=ServerFolder & "\" & WshShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%UserName%") & "_" & Replace(Date,"/", ".") & "_OutlookArchive.PST"
 
wscript.echo "Source: " & File
wscript.echo "Target: " & BackupFile 
 
objFSO.CopyFile File, BackupFile
 
Set objFSO = Nothing
Set WshShell = Nothing

Open in new window
