Backing up Windows Mail files

  jz 21:14 23 Sep 2007

I'm trying to back up my Windows mail data files, and it's taking a very long time (30 mins so far, and not yet finished). I'm doing this by copying the Windows Mail folder from one PC to another over a network cable. Copying other items is usually very fast. I get the feeling that copying Windows Mail files takes so long because each individual email is a separate file. Has anyone else had this problem? Any tips? Copying Outlook Express and Outlook mail data was much quicker.
