WAB missing on backup RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Using the backup option to backup all Outlook, Outlook Express.. The WAB in OE isn't backed up.. Of all the files this one is probably the most important to all, so why leave it out???

  • What options have you selected for file types to backup? As far as I know, the .wab file should be backed up, but I'll need to get confirmation of this as I don't use OE.

  • checked them all,,, I did find on a blog somewhere that you have to click on a option in the address book to actually create the wab file otherwise OE stores the info in a different form, which there is no information of the name of this file or how to back it up..

  • I would expect that "all" should backup the .wab file unless it is located in one of the system folders that OneCare will not check for backups. I'll leave this thread unanswered until we can get some more information.
