Hi, and thanks for using

1.) As long as you have the save copy of sent messages option enabled, then your sent messages are saved in the pst file. When you backup your pst file, the sent folder/emails are backed up also.

2.) First, enable showing hidden files/folders option:
Windows XP:
Windows 7:

The Outlook 2007 default location for pst file is at:
  • Windows XP:
    C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\
  • Windows Vista/7

If needed, you can also search for the key word *.pst on your computer to look for all the pst file(s).

Then you can just back up the pst file(s) to a USB external hard drive, etc.

You can also use the File, Import option in Outlook, but they don't back up everything; you can click here for all the back up options if needed.

Please let me know if you have any further question. Thank you.
