    It saves it, but getting it to show up is a different story. I can't really remember what I did.

    Outlook Backup Tool... yep.. backs up address book/bookmarks too if I remember correctly.

    But make sure you verify that it's made a good back up.. and it isn;t corrupt. I skipped this bit, took me a while to unpack it using other means... hassle which can be avoided.

    Yes, it will. If you format and want to recover your data, open Outlook. File | Open | Outlook Data. Once you open the backup file, you can copy over contacts, notes, etc.
