Ok, so I am looking for the best, most efficient and reliable way to back up my Outlook calendar (as well as make sure that all the categories I have assigned - like "personal"- stay assigned) as well as my email.
I have really important, sentimental, meaningful, and/or personal events in my calendar dating back to 2006 that I want to be able to go back to and remember the dates of, etc, and these are all in my Outlook calendar so losing this info would be devastating to me. I seem to always get a different answer from the guys at the local "Geek Squad" as to how to do this reliably so I thought I would post here.
Up to now, I have been going opening Outlook, choosing "export to a file", selecting .pst, and putting this exported file onto an external hard drive. I have been doing this in one step, that includes all my Personal Folders (so calendar, contacts, email). Is this correct and would this file be able to be seamlessly imported if I bought another computer or had a hard drive go bad (which has happened to me three times!!!!).
Would greatly appreciate any and all thoughts/opinions on how to best do this and please include details!
Thanks so much! Grateful for a site like this that can offer technical support from the community
