    Outlook Sync

    (Edited by HansV to make URL clickable - see <!help=19>Help 19<!/help>. It takes only a few seconds and is much more user-friendly.)

    I am still looking for software that will properly back up my .pst files from one computer to the other. I came across this program this morning and wondered if anyone had used it or if they could suggest something else.

    1) What do you mean by "backup"? The way you have stated your question, I personally find it is more than a little obtuse..... hehe SORRY!: "backup from one computer to another"?

    2) IF by "backup" you mean you want to save a copy of your current .pst file to another location, e.g., on a network computer, a designated folder, another partition on the same drive, etc., then Microsoft has a free utility created just for doing this: Outlook Personal Folders Backup.

    Yes,
    I have SyncToy and I use that tool for synchronizing my files between computers. It will sync the .pst files if they are in the foler that I am syncing, but what I was looking for was an easier (than the way I was doing it) of getting my .pst files from Outlook on one computer to Outlook of the other computer and the Microsoft program did it.
    Thanks John

    If you are looking for a good sync program, check out BeInSync (http://www.beinsync.com). I have been using it for 2 months now to synch my laptop and desktop and my desktop with my wife's desktop without a problem (after a couple of minor hiccups). There are 2 versions available, a free version, which has a limit on the number of files that can be sync'd each day and a limit of 5 "shares" (i.e., directories) that can be sync'd, and a Pro version, which allows an unlimited number of files to be sync'd each day and 15 shares.

    The Pro pricing is unusual in that it offers a 1-year subscription for $59.95, a 2-year subscription for $99.95, and a "perpetual" license for $149.95. After trying the free version for a few days, I decided to buy the Pro version and bought the perpetual license. I had a couple of minor hiccups with using the program (mainly because I had no experience with trying to sync computers) and support was quick and responsive -- except that it is limited to e-mail (the company is in Israel).

    I tried BeInSync originally becaused it got good reviews from both PC Magazine (http://tinyurl.com/y4jer3) and PC World (http://tinyurl.com/yxemal).
