Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting PST and OST data files, part of Outlook 2013 Essential Training.
One thing that's always been a little mysterious about using Outlook is where…your data actually resides on your computer, and how do you get to it if you…need to move everything over to a new computer or even just want to back it up.…So the first thing we can do is find out where our data is actually stored on…the computer and we do that by going to File>Info>Account Settings and then…clicking on Account Settings again.…This brings us to a list of all the accounts we have in Outlook.…I'm going to go to the Data Files tab.…Now I can see things like My Outlook Data File, here's my Gmail and here's my exchange file.…
Here is the offline folders that I have for these accounts and here is the PST…which stands for Personal Folders File that I have for my Outlook data file.…The neat thing that I can do about this is I can actually highlight it and…click Open File Location.…This is going to take me directly to my file.…Here's the archive file that we created a couple of videos back, so from here …I can actually just copy these to a thumb drive or burn them to a CD or whatever …
