Adding Your Outlook Data To Onguard Backup

Posted on

These instructions will allow you to locate your Outlook Data File and set your OnGuard Remote Backup to perform a backup of your emails.
Your contacts, messages, calendar entries, tasks, and all other email data is stored in a special file on your computer called a PST file. This file should be backed up regularly to ensure you do not lose your history in the event of a hardware failure.

Note: You must have Outlook closed before you perform a backup or before your scheduled backup begins.
