Outlook Backup

Outlook Backup mit dem Assistent

Outlook is a part of the Microsoft© Office package. In addition to sending and receiving e-mails, it contains a variety of features for professional users, such as managing contacts, tasks, notes, and dates.

Outlook keeps its data in different, hard to access locations in the whole Windows system. The exact locations and file formats vary depending on the Office and Windows versions used.

Outlook files are locked and cannot be accessed by other applications while Outlook is running. These files can only be copied if Z-VSScopy is installed or if all Outlook processes are stopped. This may include other applications, such as internet, phone or fax applications, which use Outlook's .PST files or the address book. Some applications, such as Copernic indexing service, can lock the PST files even if Outlook is not running. Such applications need to be closed during a backup as well, if Z-VSScopy is not installed.
