In either version, this will bring you to the Account Settings dialog box, where you should click the Data Files tab. Select your Outlook Data File, then click the Open Folder button (version 2007) or the Open File Location button (2010).

The folder containing your Outlook data will open in Windows Explorer. Return to Outlook, close the Account Settings dialog box, then close Outlook.

Back in Windows Explorer, copy the contents of this folder to a safe location, such as an external hard drive.

That’s it. Outlook is backed up. Now let’s jump ahead to that day you need to restore that data.
