Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003 Personal Folders Backup
""Backing up your Microsoft Outlook information is quicker and easier with the Personal Folders Backup feature. Personal Folders Backup creates backup copies of your .PST files at regular intervals, in Outlook 2000 and later versions, making it easy to keep all of your Outlook folders safely backed up.
With Personal Folders Backup, you can choose which of your .PST files you wish to back up, and how often you wish to back them up.
Each .PST file contains all of your Outlook folders, including the Inbox, Calendar, and Contacts. You can have a single .PST file (usually called "Internet Folders" or "Personal Folders" in your Folder List), but you might also have an additional .PST file that you use for archiving ("Archiving Folders"). Personal Folders Backup lets you back up any or all of these .PST files."

Re: Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003 Personal Folders Backup
Have you installed and tested this add-in you're promoting? I have a question for you:
The version* supplied with Office XP works like this: when you close Outlook, a dialog pops up asking if you want to back up your files, and lists the PSTs you have elected to back up (it has a configuration button here also). But there is a very annoying feature with this system: it will not remind you to backup any sooner than 24 hours after the last backup. This means that if you shut down Outlook at 6:00 on Monday, you get a dialog to back up. Great. (Just remember to point it to another machine or... what's the point?) If on Tuesday you close out at 5:45, no dialog, no backup. Knowing this, you could of course manually back up your files. But that's the hassle it is trying to help you avoid. So it's not as convenient as it might sound for people who have variable schedules.
But... perhaps you have an updated veresion. Does the newly posted version have a shorter minimum interval?
