Outlook Contacts

Can Mozy automatically back up my Outlook contacts?

Re: Outlook Contacts

Yes, looks like it can under Backup Sets and choose Email & Contacts.  Selecting that made it automatically find where my Outlook files are stored--it can be in different places depending on what version of Outlook you're running.  For instance, mine was saved here:  C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook

 

I'm running Outlook 2010 but I think the location it's saved is different for other versions.

 

Hope that helps.

Re: Outlook Contacts

Assuming you're referring to Office Outlook, Mozy can back up not only your contacts, but your calendar and mail as well.  if you use a POP account in Outlook, your data will be stored in an Outlook Data File (a PST).  Because that PST is kept in your Windows profile, it will be covered my default in the Mozy backup set.

 

If you you use an IMAP or Outlook.com (Exchange ActiveSync) account, it's not as crucial to include the data file in the backup set.  The reason is that the data remains on the server so even if you have to recreate your Windows profile, when you reconfigure Outlook, your data will be waiting for you on the server.  In fact, you cannot reuse a data file for IMAP or Exchange ActiveSync accounts.

Re: Outlook Contacts

you can backup OE contacts...

 

first you'll have to config windows to show hidden folders and files. 

 

go to "control panel" , find "folder options", on the view tab mark "show hidden files and folders".

 

next go to : C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book - inside you'll find a .wab file that looks like a book, right click it and choose :add to mozy backups.

 

hope i helped....

good luck.

Re: Outlook Contacts

Try going into Settings, Backup Sets, and on one of the existing sets for email and contact, do a right click and edit.  You can check the rules to make sure that your files are chosen for backup.  Also, you can do a left click on the backup set and it should show you on the right side pane all the files that are chosen for backup. 

 

You can also create your own backup set to grab files of your choosing.  We created the basic backup sets for popular file types.  However, you may have specialized files that need to be backed up so this is how you would do that.

 

Hope this is helpful..
