Outlook 2010 is the next big desktop mail client from Microsoft. It has been vastly improved and is faster, more feature-rich than before. The basic design of Outlook profile is however the same when compared with Outlook 2007.
This basic infrastructure allows users to export Outlook 2007 profiles to Outlook 2010 easily. Another benefit is that you can make a backup of Outlook 2010 just like you can make backup of Outlook 2007 quickly using various tools.
Recently in my last post, I reviewed MailBrowserBackup. A free utility that allows users to make backup of various desktop mail clients, such as, Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird, and Outlook 2003/2007.
What I discovered was that you can also make a backup of Outlook 2010 as well, by selecting Outlook 2003/2007 profile.
To test it, I first saved a draft mail in my default Outlook 2010 profile and then used this tool to make a backup. Later I removed the draft and used this tool to restore the backup. Lo and behold the draft was back in it’s full form. Go ahead and give it a try, kudos to the developer for making an awesome utility.
Update: You can also make a backup by using default Export functionality. To learn more about Importing And Exporting Outlook 2010, go here.
