    Help Backing Up Outlook Email Files

    So frustrated with this stoopid Outlook Import / Export.

    I exported some emails that I want to save. I exported them as a .PST file.
    I did not encrypt the disc, or create any special password / permission.

    then burned the file to a CD. I confirmed the session was closed so the CD could be opened on other computers.

    But when I transferred the CD to my laptop, and tried Importing the files, I keep getting an error message stating, "File access denied. You do not have permission required to access the .PST

    What gives ???? Aggggghhhhhh.

    It's been a while but my last experience with that I believe that fix was to copy the pst file from the CD to the hard drive of the lap top and then import it from the hard drive. I couldn't get it to import off the CD.

    Re: Help Backing Up Outlook Email Files

    Once you copy it from the CD to the HD you may possibly have to reset permissions on it too. This talks a little about importing/exporting too and notes you need to copy the file to the local HD before importing: How to manage.pst files in Outlook 2007, in Outlook 2003, and in Outlook 2002

    Yes, it needs to be copied to the HD.

    But I also discovered the .PST file was associated with Word, not Outlook and that's what it wouldn't open.

    Thanks for your replies!
