How to backup ms windows XP emails?

Securing your emails is very important. None of us want to lose all our emails. Outlook PST files are known to get corrupted frequently. Even if they reach a size of 2 gigabytes, there is a high probability that they will be damaged.

To back up your backup ms windows xp contacts, or emails, you need to know where your PST file is located and what it’s called (your PST file is the file where all your emails are stored). Go to control panel, Start > Settings> Control Panel, and then click email. Then click data files. Now write down the full path and file name of the PST file.

Is there no PST file there? or you think you might have another .use pst file? Then we can browse your entire Computer for PST files. Click Start> search> for files and folders. Click on the link “all files and folders” on the left, enter in the upper search field * .pst and then click enter. Note down all paths and file names of all your PST files.

Backup method 1-Copy the PST files manually. Make sure your Outlook is closed. When Outlook is open, the PST file is locked, and the backup should fail. Use the Explorer to navigate to the location of the PST file, right-click on it, and select Copy. Then insert it to a different location and preferably on a different physical hard drive/media.

Backup method 2- Use the built-in Windows XP backup program. Click Start> Programs> Accessories> System programs> backup, click Backup Wizard / next, select backup selected files, next, now navigate to the location where the PST file is located, and select the checkbox next to it. Click Next. Select a folder where you want to backup the PST file. I recommend backing up to another physical hard drive or removable device. Give the backup job a good name, e.g. “email backup 01.01.2008”. So if you need to perform a recovery, you can easily determine which backup you need to use. Click Next and then click Finish. The backup is now executed.
