Question about backup contents

Jun 28, 2016 at 11:16 PM
Just installed this and it works great for me in version 2010 Like that the Outlook data file is automatically backed up without having to remember to do it manually. Wondering about the outlook accounts, settings, contacts, and rules though. It looks like the backup file only has actual emails. Am I missing something? Thanks!

Hello,

the pst-files only contains the emails, contacts and calendar entries.

For backup of account settings and signatures please check:

Outlook items are stored at different locations. For more details, please check:

The backup script can be easily extended to backup additional data.

Kind regards,
Thomas
