I am using Outlook 2002 with the backup tool. The drive on my main computer

crashed and I am trying to load the Outlook backup file onto my backup

computer from my backup disk. My saved file is 1.35GB. When I open the file

it creates a .pst file of 32.0KB. When I import the opened file it is an

empty personal folder and deleted file. Please advise.

Thanks, Ken

The backup file is simply a copy of your main data file, named

backup.........

Locate the file in Documents (ensure read only attribute is off, if you used

cd/dvd to transfer)

Within Outlook, open the backup data file

Thank you for your response. That is the procedure I followed and I just

checked to verify that read only was off. After opening i end up with the

original saved fiel and the newer smaller file. When I export i get empty

folders.

Outlook Personal Folders Backup Tool

I installed the backup tool for User A but when I switch to User B and Open

Outlook 2007 there is no Backup option in the file menu.

If I elect to install it again on the User B account it prompts me to

uninstall the backup app first.

How to get the backup option in the file menu for user B?
