    Dear ssalgado: Thank you for your kind assistance with this problem. I was able to access the backup files by following the directions that you provided. However, when I attempt to open this file, it appears to consist of programming code that is not recognizable to me. Any suggestions that you have regarding how to make this file decipherable would be most appreciated.

    Thanks again. Best wishes for a happy new year.

You have to find the folder where Outlook save it's files and back it up.
Outlook files have a "pst" extension, so look in your hard disk for *.pst files to find them.

This is from a Microsoft site:
To find your .pst files on your hard disk

  1. On the Windows taskbar, click Start, point to Find, and then click Files or Folders.
  2. In the Named box, type *.pst.
  3. In the Look in box, select the appropriate drive.
  4. Click Find Now.

    Dear Ron,
    the pst files aren't ment to be open as you did. They're only read by Outlook who shows you your mails.
    If you only want a backup, just copy the pst file to a safe place.
    But if you wan't to read what's inside the pst, you'll need Outlook or some other tool.
    Regards, Sebastián

The difference between Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express


1 :Outlook Express was developed as part of Internet
Explorer with the home user in mind while Outlook
was developed as part of Microsoft Office with the
corporate user in mind.
2. Outlook Express is a basic Internet mail program
that is part of Internet Explorer and Windows.
Outlook is a full-featured personal information
manager that is available as a part of Microsoft
Office and also as a stand-alone program.
3. Outlook has a host of features that Outlook
Express does not have, such as a calendar,
a task list, a journal, and automatic backup into
archive files.
4. Outlook can be programmed using Visual Basic
for Applications (VBA) but Outlook Express cannot.
5. Outlook also has a very powerful Junk Mail feature
6. Outlook has message rules for both incoming
and outgoing mail, while Outlook Express can
only filter incoming.
7. Outlook Express was designed for use on a single
computer and so its message store and settings
cannot be stored on a server. Outlook however
was tailor-made for networks, and so its message
store can be on a central server that many
machines can access.

Outlook pst file creation and export


All your mail, your contacts, your calendars, and almost every other detail of your life is in Outlook. To make sure you don't lose all this in case of a hard disk crash or some other disaster, you can create backup copies of your Personal Folders (.pst) files — that's where Outlook stores all the essential data.
Back Up or Copy Your Outlook Mail, Contacts and Other Data To create a copy of your mail, contacts, calendar and other data in Outlook for backup or copying:
  • Go to your Outlook folder in Windows Explorer.
  • Highlight all files ending in ".pst".
    • Make sure in particular your selection includes "outlook.pst" and "archive.pst".
  • Select Edit | Copy from the menu to copy them.
  • Open the folder where you want to put your backup copies in Windows Explorer.
    • Ideally, this will be on another computer, on a removable disk stored far away from your home, somewhere on the Internet, or at least on a different hard disk.
  • Select Edit | Paste from the menu to paste your .pst files to the backup location
Restore from Your Outlook Backup Your backup copy of Outlook data is now in place, ready to be restored when you need it.


Restore Outlook Mail, Contacts and Other Data from a Backup To restore your mail, contacts and other data from a backup copy of an Outlook PST file:
  • Select File | Import and Export... from the menu in Outlook.
  • Select Import from another program or file.
  • Click Next.
  • Highlight Personal Folder File (PST).
  • Click Next again.
  • Now use the Browse button to select the backup copy of the PST file you want to recover from your backup location.
  • Make sure Replace duplicates with items imported is selected.
  • Click Next.
  • Finish the import process with Finish.
Usually, the default import settings work fine, but you may want to tweak them to suit your needs.
