This is using MS Outlook 2010 on all my company's desktops. My management want me to implement so as all the local pst files will be sync and backing up into the central storage. I hear about back in outlook 2003, there is an add-on called "pst for outlook" that we can install. How about outlook 2010, any utility doing the same thing?

appreciate for help.

For one of my clients we use Syncback (for about 25 PST)

It can backup files across the network even if they are locked by Outlook

You can also try PSTStation Corporate that allows to manage backup from a central part and is able to backup while Outlook is opened. The result of the backup is a pst file

Hi Marshalhub,

The pstbackup serves the purpose. BTW, is there a way to automate the export?

THere is no way to automate the export in Outlook.
If you want a simple solution only for one user, you can try BackupMyFolder! or PFBackup

Hi MezzutOzil,

Manual PST export is a best option but If you want take backup pst file by automate option then you can go with add-in which make easy to take email backup from PST file. As i have found Stellar Mail Backup to take backcup from MS Outlook, Outlook Express, and Windows Mail… Try demo first.

With Sycnback there is no need to export, simply backup the file in place.
