    Hello,

    problem with Outlook 2003 and 2007.

    No Tasks are working. Either Outlook 2003 (XP) and 2007 (Vista).

    Just when doing manually A. will do the job.

    Otherwise no erros and a very small backup file with just some empty folders.

    And with Outlook 2003: i have a password for Opening my Outlook 2003. Is it therefore because I can not do any backups?

    Thanks!

    Well, It is know issue with TI. Still no update on it:( . Instead of creating an email backup, I prefer creating a "My Data" backup :cool: and create a backup for outlook foler.
    1)Create a new backup task and use backup type as “My Data”.
    2)Browse to C:\Documents and Settings\[user_account_name]\Local Settings\Applications Data\Microsoft\Outlook.
    3)Follow the on-screen instructions.
    4)Schedule the task as “Manually later”. You can also use any other schedule task type as well ( e.g. weekly)

    While restoring this backup, please select “Original location” on “Destination selection screen”.
    Works for me!!!:D

    Using ATI to backup Outlook is like using a sledgehammer to crack an egg. :gack:

    By far the easiest, quickest, safest, most convenient and most flexible way of backing up Outlook is to simply Copy & Paste the .pst file to a Flash drive. You can do this manually or of course you can automate it if you want to.

    This gives you the ability to open your Outlook folder on any Windows-compatible machine without the need for any other software.

    I have ATI 11 Home and find my Outllook 2003 mail backup folders are empty.
    Using Explore to look at them, and find nothing?

    I have the 7/7/2008 install. I see no update in my account for this?

    Is there a fix?

    Hello BobWC,

    Thank you for using Acronis True Image

    The list of the latest builds is available here

    What is the size of the .pst file? Find out the size of the Outlook.pst file by browsing to where it is located:

    - Windows XP

    C:\Documents and Settings\[user_account_name]\Local Settings\Applications Data\Microsoft\Outlook

    - Windows Vista

    C:\Users\[user_account_name]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook

    Thank you.
