Outlook File

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I'm freaking out here.  As with many (most?) who use Outlook, I have become rather dependent on it continually saving changes to my PST file.  I recently upgraded to Windows 7 and after (with your help) overcoming the "Access Permissions" issue things have seemed to be working fine.  But I went to back up my Outlook.pst file to a removable drive, and when I searched my entire computer for the location of the file the only Outlook.pst file it found was a week old!  I use (and change) Outlook several times a day, so this doesn't make any sense (for years I've been going through the same process, and the "last modified" date is always when I last closed the program.  Any ideas?
