A PST file (*.pst) is not a backup data for Microsoft Office Outlook. The PST file is one of the two types of Outlook Data Files used by Office Outlook. It is used by the majority of Office Outlook accounts. It is used by IMAP, POP3, and web-based mail accounts. The PST file stores your messages and other items on your computer.

This is the most common file where Office Outlook saves the information for home users and small organizations. The most common types of email accounts are called by their protocol names and they are IMAP and POP3. A third type of email account is called HTTP or web-based account and it works similar to IMAP. All three email account types use a PST file.

You can also archive or move items to a PST file. Since a PST file is stored on your computer, it is not subject to mailbox size limits on the mail server. If you want to locate the PST file on your computer, here are its locations according to operating system:

  • Microsoft Windows XP – C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\
  • Microsoft Windows Vista and Microsoft Windows 7 – C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\MicrosoftOutlook
