Reminders Outlook 2013

I am using outlook 2013 with an IMPA server

I'm getting ready to upgrade and want to make sure I don't lose important information.

I've backed-up folders to a separate PST file including:
 - all email folders
 - Contacts
 - Notes
 - Calendar
 - Tasks

I have numerous reminders set with Contacts and email - can't seem to find them in a folder in my basic email account - I assume that they migrate with the individual emails and contacts etc.

Anything else I need to consider?

The last time I made a change like this I lost contacts and calendar info and could not recover from the old IMAP folder.

I'm trying to make sure I don't repeat that mistake :)

Hello

all email folders
 - Contacts
 - Notes
 - Calendar
 - Tasks

The list that you mentioned seems OK

For you to be sure it will be better to accomplish the restore operation first on a test environment.
If you have another PC or to the same but create a new windows profile from scratch, import your pst files in Outlook and you will see the results
