Many of my co-workers recently lost about 2 weeks worth of Outlook data as

something got corrupted and the IT folks can only restore to about 2 weeks

ago. So I am wondering how difficult it is to write a VBA utility that could

kick in every night and copy the contents of folders from Outlook to a place

on a local drive. Should I export to a file? Or can I archive but not move

the data (duplicate it, in other words) or can I copy it some other way so

that it remains in tact in the inbox, sent box, etc, but it is personally

backed up also. Thanks for your help. BTW, I am pretty familiar with VBA

but typically only work in Excel VBA. Thanks in Advance.

Do you know that such a VBA solution can work only when Outlook is running?

Best regards

Suggest your IT an enterprise solution for .pst backup.

Link to www.datamills.com and download the Pst2Pst trial.

The application was reviewed by PC magazine.

Enjoy
