Editors' Review

+
Although Outlook Express Backup's purpose is fairly narrow, it does what it does very well, with a full complement of features we expect to see in a good backup utility. Its name defines its limits; this program will back up your Outlook Express e-mail and configuration files. However, it does go a bit beyond that by also backing up Internet Explorer bookmarks and any files that you manually select. The interface is nice and clean, highlighting its three main functions: backing up, restoring, and scheduling. A wizard walks you through the creation of a backup, which is useful for novice users. The program includes essential features for a backup utility, such as the ability to schedule jobs, compression of backup files, and encryption of your archive. You also can choose the level of compression and encryption. One unfortunate drawback is that you can't include folders among the manually selected files, making it inappropriate for more general backups. This program is extremely useful for those who use Outlook Express and don't know where its files are hidden. If you can figure that out, however, a more general backup utility is a better option.

"Unusable in my experience"

May 31, 2009  |  By rossnroller

 |  Version: Outlook Express Backup 6.5

Pros

Couldn't get it to work, so no pros!

Cons

Like nuskap, I kept getting error messages and never once managed to get this program to work.

Summary

Going by the feedback, this software is buggy on some computers - mine amongst them. I've given up on it. Will now try a free batch file auto-back-up I found elsewhere.

Pros

Nothing as it does not work
