The easy way: backup your .pst file and a few other files.
http://www.slipstick.com/config/backup2007.asp tells you the details.
However, I recommend trying the procedure by restoring the backup on another laptop/PC and see how it works out.
Ok so I know there is an option to Export your Outlook into a .pst file and then import it. Well I'm doing something wrong because I tried importing my old file and my old notes are not coming through.
I'm paranoid because I have so much stuff on my outlook and if I drop my laptop and something happens I am screwed.
So this is basically what i want: I want to be able to back up EVERYTHING. I mean every bit of information, including my ISP username and password. And let's say this .pst file backup that I assume will result from this backup, let's say I lose my laptop, I buy a new one and instal Microsoft Office 2007 and then import this backup I want EVERYTHING BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS.
I DON'T want stuff to be imported into new folders or any other headaches, I just want everything restored, at the moment it just comes out really complicated, I don't get it. I know this is not much information but I'm sure there's a way to back up all your folders and restore them if your hard drive malfunctions and loses all your stuff.
