Backup Outlook 2007Which Backup Program Can Do It?

By: Alexander Golishev

There is plenty of backup software that can backup data from the MS Outlook email client, however, it is often the case that the backup software that you buy can only backup older Outlook versions and cannot backup the latest versions such as Outlook 2007. So how can you find out if particular backup software allows backing up Outlook 2007?

The first thing to do is it to make sure that a given backup solution features Outlook backup functionality at all. A lot of backup programs introduce Outlook backup as a separate preset – the special menu option that allows you to automatically add Outlook data to the backup set. Once the data are added into backup list, you can further specify what exactly needs to be included into backup, and which data should be left out.

Check if the software allows adding different groups of Outlook elements separately. For example, does it allow backing up mail messages only, or does it allow you to back up only the contacts? To find out if particular software has Outlook backup functionality in its arsenal, you need to do a little search on the developer’s website. The Outlook backup functionality is a popular feature for any backup program, so if the software has it, it would be announced somewhere on the main pages of the developer’s website.

However, if you have doubts that a particular program has Outlook backup, you might as well want to download the free trial version of the backup software and find out this information through actual work with the program. Some backup software developers may announce which Outlook versions their software supports. Even if it supports all Outlook versions, it would be nice of the developer to mention each Outlook version specifically for the users to be positively sure.

It also makes sense to check out other features of the backup program and see how they combine with the Outlook backup functionality. For exampleHealth Fitness Articles, does this particular software allow doing Outlook mail encryption and compression? Is the task scheduler flexible enough to let you back up Outlook 2007 regularly? Does the software allow keeping several copies of Outlook mail backup? The answers to these questions largely define the efficiency of software with which you backup Outlook 2007.
