So far ~ installed from both Links, sequentially, and then used the "Fix it for me" Button. ~ Backup does not appear under the Files Tab but does under the Add-Ins Tab. Seems the best that I can now do is to get it to remind me to Backup Daily. Is this Correct? Not fully automated as in XP 2002!
Not yet Automated, still works on Manual though. However, used Backup from Add-Ins Tab. Got Error 0x80070021 which says that something is still blocking, but offers "Try Again" Button, which then works.
I have to go to work now but will re-try loading the (First) Fix-it Link again, tomorrow at about the same time. Why, on earth, M$ can't include this as a standard part of the Home & Office Program, I have no idea.
At the moment nothing, unless I access Backup using the Add-Ins Tab, and tell it to backup. In which Case a Box opens with a green loading Bar in it and the Backup is carried out.
There was too much of a Gale here, for me to work, so I have been in and out of Outlook several times over the last 4 hours and no backup has been carried out.
I tried setting Reminder to "Daily"
This morning ~ When I closed Outlook, I got a reminder to Backup. Followed by a PopUp saying that it had failed to Backup but with a green Button at the bottom giving a "Try Again" option. That worked.
Do you think that that will be as good as it gets? Or should I try reloading the 'Fix it' from your first set of links?
I have the backup working, but I have not managed to automate it. It has to be carried out by hand each day.
I have pressed the 'Accept Answer' Button although we have not solved the problem.
In my opinion Microsoft is somewhat remis in not providing a working backup solution for such a mission Critical part of its Software. I would put it somewhat stronger than that, but not in the polite terms I usually deal with Tradesmen.
The fault is not yours.
Thank you. Have they released the Deposit to you yet? If not I will hit 'Accept Answer' again.
Seems to have been a learning journey for the both of us.
I shall think about that last link for a while, before I uninstall the M$ Solution('Add in') and install it.
I'm still using the 'Add In' and just click on the Pop-up each day when it asks me. That file is then backed up, on line.
As they would have said in the Roaring Twenties "It's just Tickety Boo"
Have an enjoyable Christmas.
Don't know whether you celebrate it, or not, but it's now a spending Fest and with any luck there should be plenty of questions for you to answer afterwards.
