  1. Hello

    I have windows XP. There are instructions on the net to use NTBACKUP.MSI. Even though I downloaded the file the computer can't find the file.

    Whats the best way to back up to a portable hard drive on a regular basis?

    ALSO

    I also would like to back up my address book to the portable hard drive.

    Thanks Heaps

    go to your address book in Outlook and Export them (addresses) to a file. You can than Import them to another Mail Client or overwrite the existing imported file with your updated one. I believe Import/Export is under Tools once you open your address book.

    The file you need is labeled .pst
