This guide shows you how to make a proper Outlook 2007 email archive backup.
- Close Outlook and wait 10 seconds
- Run: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\scanpst.exe
- Open the file in “C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook”

To open the backups, just open the .pst files you copied earlier.
