Back Up you work

With all the effort gone in creating those custom forms in outlook, managing your all important emails and contacts, integrating multiple accounts into the outlook email client, transferring your documents to a Document Management System such as M-Files, passwords and identities in Roboform and RSS feeds in FeedDemon, its important to ensure that in case of an issue with your software and/or laptop/PC you are easily able to re install afresh with no historical data getting lost.  For this it is important to have a backup and restore option in the software that you use. Apart from having the back up files on the laptop/PC itself its also good practice to save the same on an alternate storage such as CD/Storage Drive (Lacie for eg.) etc. One might also consider cloud based backup though security and privacy may be concerns. Specifically for outlook backup one can look at backup application such as Backup4All which purports to back up all outlook data including custom forms, signatures etc. something which outlook itself doesn’t allow via ost/pst files, not sure if that is true!
