How Do I Backup My Outlook Files?


To backup your outlook files, first log in to your account in the desktop version of outlook. Make sure you have the latest version, or at least the 2007 one, for this backup to work. You also need an Office 365 email account. Any microsoft account will also work. Now follow the following instructions:

1. In the desktop outlook, add your Office 365 account.

2. When both accounts have been signed in, your files of Outlook account will automatically be copied to the Office account. Now, optionally, if you want to export this information further to a .pst file, follow the below steps: Click on file tab in outlook and select “import/export”.

Select the “export” option from list and click on .pst file from the given options. See image for reference: You will get an option to select the folder where you want this file and what you want to name it.
