Is it safe to assume that the only Outlook 2010 folders I need to back up are located in Documents? (assuming Outlook is using default locations only). It seems like the Outlook folders in AppData contain the IMAP data files which I remember you saying cannot be re-used. Thanks

Correct, assuming you created the accounts in outlook 2010, you only need to back up the documents folder. if you upgraded from an older version of outlook, then your pop3 and personal pst files could be in the local appdata location.
