How to backup contacts in Outlook 2010 as business cards

Happy New Year to everyone.

I have just found this forum so i'm making my first post.

I am currently backing up my contacts in Outlook 2010. I want to back them up in 'business card' format. Does anyone know if this is possible? If so, how's it done?

Thanks for any info.

No, its not possible to only backup the business card format. The business card is part of the contact form so if you back up the contact, you'll see the business cards in any newer version of Outlook (that supports business cards).
