    Hi all,

    I've searched the forums and found a few threads about this, but can't find an answer to this question:

    If I backup my Outlook inbox to a .pst file (using the Import/Export options)... reformat... and then re-import the file back into Outlook, WILL MY ATTACHMENTS BE THERE?!!

    I'm going to reformat this morning - as soon as I can - but I'll have to go through saving important attachments before I do it if the attachments aren't preserved by the backup.

    Prompt replies appreciated!

    Yes they will.

    You probably know this already, but you can also backup/restore your contacts this way.

    static99 is quite correct !!

    When you do the backup it will show you a folder list, if you choose personal folders and then tick include subfolders you wont accidenatly miss anything.
