I have to copy/backup e-mails.
The Method that has partly worked
I create a backup folder on the desktop, then I select the e-mails on the Right in a particular folder, then I drag and drop to the desktop backup folder. From there to CD.
This works fine, until you get 2 e-mails with the same subject.....(Quite often when people have used the Reply) button
Then the "Confirm File Replace" box pops-up!
Because this "file" has the same "name" it gives you 2 options
(1)Yes-Replace, which deletes the first e-mail I have just copied!
(2)No-Which means the second e-mail is NOT backed-up/copied! :
I have tried Right-Clicking the e-mails to rename them...no such option
I have tried dragging the complete OE folders to the Backup folder...Not allowed
Result: Only a partial backup, many emails excluded.
I have tried 2 other methods
(1) "Copying .dbx files" as here http://www.showshown...m/email-backup/
They would not open or show when I put the CD in another PC despite following all the dodges in the link above for finding them.
(2) "Copying the .pst file". NO SUCH THING can be found on my PC. And yes, I have set Explorer to show hidden files
Please Help, if you can. Sorry this seems so basic, but I can't find an answer on the web. How does everone else cope with this?
