How to copy Outlook Folders to PST Automatically on a Schedule

Here is the scenario:
Client on Office 365 E3
Using Outlook 2013 as part of hte system
Worried about the system losing individual Contacts

What my client wants to do is, have Outlook copy his entire Contacts folder to a local PST file, on a regular basis, automatically then have that PST copied backed up to a USB drive.

The client is super concerned about this and no matter.

I have setup a PST file on his Outlook and made the first copy, manually. Using a free Outlook addin I found online I can have that PST file backed up to a USB drive on a regular basis (which works a treat).

What I don't have is a method for the clients Contact folder being copied to the PST file on a regular basis, automatically. What we need is similar to Auto Archive  but keeping that Contacts in place (i.e. not archiving them!).

Any ideas?

Thanks
Mark

I think your best bet is a macro.  Someone has already written this:

I have not personally tested it, but if this doesn't work quite the way you want there are plenty of alternatives on the Internet.

You can also set up a button in Outlook so that your end user can run this as often she/he likes.
