Outlook 2016 PST Backup

I just upgraded from outlook 2007 to 2016. I had an automatic back when I closed down the program. It was an addin from Microsoft. Is this available for Office 2016?

Do you remember the name of the backup addin?  

What do you see if you click File > Options > Add-ins in Outlook 2016?  Do you see the add-in as Active or Inactive there?

Hi Paul,

The backup addin is not available in Office 2016 but you can save your date by exporting in PST time to time.

I know I can do manually having had issues before with corrupted outlook files, I want to do a automatic at least once a day without having to think about.  Maybe there is macro script available?

Hi Paul,

Do you have Ofice 2016 Suite or Office 2016 Office 365?

I purchased the Office Suite. They were REALLY pushing the 365, and made it hard to get, but that gripe that is for another time :)
