Can anyone tell me about an Outlook (that’s the FULL version NOT Express) plug-in called PFBACKUP?
I swear I read about this in a thread I actually started, but darned if I can find anyone’s reference to it but mine.
I posted here at the good ol’ SDMB cuz I could get no answers from Microsoft or Dell (unless I pay them).
I wanted to transfer my old email from my old Win98SE system to my new WinXP system.
Somewhere I learned about this add-in called PFBACKUP. It adds a new menu item under the “File” pulldown menu, called Backup. The utility asks you if you want to “Create” a backup or “Install” a backup. Simple. By selecting Create, on my Win98 system, it created an Outlook-Backup.PST that is a backup of all my “Personal Folders” in Outlook. So fa, So good.
Now, I’ve been using my new WinXP system for a while, and I have newer email on it.
Now, at last, here’s my question: If I transfer the .PST backup file to my XP system, run the PFBACKUP and select “Install”, will it MERGE my old email into my new system, or will it Over-Write it? Thereby loosing all my new email?
Yes, I’ve already searched MS’s “extensive knowlege base”:rolleyes: and it’s about as verbose as the back of a penny.
Hep me guys!
