I have office XP, going to reformat. to backup my emails in outlook do i goto file-export to a my docs folder then copy to a cd.
after reinstall import from cd back to outlook.
Is this correct or is there more to it?

I have now found my backup files which were hidden.
It says it will harm my pc to open them, would i have to reload outlook and open them there.

A back-up file is only needed when you have had a crash or the file has become corrupted.

If you do need to reinstate your .pst file, then this is where you do it.

Just copy it from your CD and paste it back into the Windows Folder.
