Or, from within Outlook, File, Open & Export, Import/Export, Export to File, Outlook Datafile (pst), select your account (eg. then browse to wherever you want to backup to. Repeat for each account.
thank you Sidevalve. I back up the whole of my Documents which incorporates pictures and music. Downloads also gets backed up but that is a separate folder
