Backing up your emails After locating email folder you could include this folder in backups to backup your emails. Make sure that your backup program does not try to lock files while running a backup since this will cause file-sharing problems whenever Outlook Express is running. If you are using WinBackup this should not be a problem since WinBackup does not attempt to lock files and can therefore backup your emails while outlook is running without causing any file sharing problems. You can also try to copy emails to a new folder before running a backup to avoid file-sharing problems, or you could simply close Outook Express whenever a backup operation is started.
Restoring your emails To restore your emails, locate email folder as described above and restore email files to this folder. If you have reinstalled Windows you might have to restore files to a different folder that could possibly cause some problems. If you are using WinBackup you can simply select emails item on restore page. WinBackup will automatically find email folder and restore your emails. WinBackup can also restore your address book if your select this icon on restore page. When restoring emails it is important to realize that any existing emails will be removed unless they are located in folders that do not exist in backup.
