    backup ost file periodically in outlook 2010


    I was used to backup the ost file periodically. on outlook using “AutoArchive” Feature. It will remove old items from the ost file and move them to the archive pst file. So It will backup the old items in ost file into pst file periodically.

    But I don't want to move old items from the ost file, I hope it can just copy the old items to pst file to backup, and also keep them in ost file. Is that possible? I just can't find a way to do that.

    Hi jreeft. Welcome to the TenForums @Jreeft

    Right click on a piece of mail you want to try this with. In the menu that appears one option is move, hover over this and another menu appears. One of the options is copy to a folder.

    There is no need to backup OST file its on the server you can delete it and it will just be recreated from the server
