"I just had my computer fail yesterday. Luckily, I had backed up Outlook that day using your Backup Outlook program!
I simply installed my purchased Backup Outlook program on the new computer, and once I got Outlook email running, I clicked the restore my files button from Backup Outlook, and bingo, all my history and recent email files are in the new Outlook, including those emails in the In Basket I had not yet attended to.
Thanks for a wonderful program that works just the way you said it would. " Bill Wade

I am so amazed! I reloaded the files I backed up using that software and everything is perfect!
