Using the Volume Shadow Copying service (VSS), Handy Backup can backup Outlook data without stopping the Outlook program itself. In addition, Handy Backup is very undemanding to resources, so it does not drop overall speed of job when running.

Quick Outlook Restoration

Quick Outlook Restoration

The restoration procedure for Outlook data is as simple as the backup process, using the same interface and methods described. Just create a restoration task, select the copy needed to restore and run the task to replace your Outlook data, or backup Outlook to PST files containing emails in native format.

Migrating from Outlook to Other Services and Clients

Migrating from Outlook to Other Services and Clients

You can use the “MS Outlook” plug-in not only to backup Outlook but also to restore or migrate its data , such as for backup emails in Outlook 2013 and then restore it to some other machine with Outlook 2016 pre-installed, or even move its content (in EML message formats) to some email services.

Any edition of Handy Backup can automatically backup Outlook data. No additional installations or investments are required to use this feature at full scale.

Review About Outlook Backup by Handy Backup

Review About Outlook Backup by Handy Backup

"It is so wonderful to have such a tool to make regular Outlook backup! These system crash events and ransomware attacks can rid me of my emails, but with Handy Backup, I can always protect my docs and letters together! I have no need for special knowledge for backup, as I have read an article about so-called 3-2-1 strategy, and then easily add it to my Outlook backup task."

Outlook.com Backup via IMAP

Outlook Backup via IMAP

Saving emails from webmail service called Outlook.com is a completely different task from local MS Outlook email backup. It is a common web service backup, which you can do by using the “E-mail” plug-in (located in the same “E-mail” group as the “Outlook” plug-in).

How to Make Outlook IMAP Backup

Create a task as for a local client, but select the “E-mail” plug-in on Step 2. Create a new connection and provide appropriate data for opening your Outlook.com email account:

  • Server: Outlook.Office365.Com
  • User and Password: your login and password for Outlook.com e-mail.

Do not touch other parameters. Give a name for this connection. After successful testing it, you can use this connection for Outlook backup and recovery.

In this video, you will see how to move Yahoo!Mail backup to Outlook.com. It is a fully automated operation, requiring only minimal tuning. By using the same way, you can backup Outlook.com to other storage or service, or recover Outlook.com data in EML formats.

    Reliable backup solution at a good price point and with nothing unnecessary. You pay only for those features you really need. I purchased the DVD+Service version and forgot about lost files as well as about the program itself because it works in the background and does not eat much system resources. I'm 100% happy with running Handy Backup. Well done novosoft, first backup program i've ever liked.
