Backing up Outlook Address Book

by Alan Copeland / July 16, 2005 12:45 AM PDT

Prior to a restore operation, I have exported my .pst files to a thumb drive using Outlook/File import and export. Once I have exported my Contacts I will have my addrees book, am I correct? I am running Office 2003. Thanks.

No .pab in Office 2003

But I added a contact, Bob Proffitt, and you were also in the address book. I deleted you from the Contact folder and you also abandoned the address book. Just as well, becasue I had an imaginary email address for you. Thanks for the links though. I had used the MS one to copy the individual .pst folders I wanted to keep.

We hope that MS will issue a OL2003 backup article...

But they seem to be slowing down on such articles.

Have you noticed that?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
