Close down Outlook in Scheduled Tasks?

    I have a batch file that backs up key files for me each night. It is called by Scheduled Tasks.

    I would like this batch file to also back up Outlook.pst, but xcopy in the batch file won't because of a lock.

    So, I would like to close down Outlook, run the batch file, then restart Outlook again.

    Anyone know a way this can be done?

    TIA

    Thanks Khayman

    I already had this installed. It is very useful, but it only offers to do a backup as you close down Outlook.

    What I am looking for is to automate the process, so I need to be able to close down Outlook.

    Thanks

    Thanks - that was the type of thing I was looking for.

    However, Outlook will not respond to Close, and I don't want to kill it every night.

    So, I guess I'll just have to do it manually for now.

    Thanks
