    Hello. I have decided to go with Karen's Replicator to backup pictures, music, etc. But I am also wanting to backup my Outlook email and archived email. Where can I find this directory in Vista to point KR to so I can back it up? Maybe this has an obvious answer but I cannot find it. Thanks.

    acr1965, although you did not state what Outlook version you have, see if this article helps you: Manually Archive Emails in Outlook 2003.
    Scroll down to Saving Archived PST Files from Outlook 2003 and see where Vista archives its Outlook files.

    Within KR make a new job,name it something like Outlook Backup,then point from there to the location on disk (source),then create a folder on the backup location such as an internal or external disk (destination) and point to that location.Then save job.If you do a backup the first time all your folders are copied to the backup location,next backups are only incremental and very fast.

    PS, Backup data is not compressed nor encrypted,just an exact copy of your original files,if something goes wrong just copy your backup files to the source location.

    I'm on XP so i guess location of the Outlook pst files with Vista are different but principles are the same.
    With the inbuild search function,look for something like archive.pst
