I don’t know if I mentioned it but my new laptop arrived earlier this week. It’s a great little machine (IBM/Lenevo X41 Tablet Review) and I’m enjoying carrying around 2 lbs worth of kit rather thank an estimated 1000 lbs per my other laptop.
But now I’m faced with a new challenge. My home PC has all my Outlook data but on a daily basis I’ll be updating the X41. How does one a) transfer Outlook data to a new PC b) keep the stuff up-to-date?
I haven’t tackled the second question – yet – but think I’ve at least found the needed data. It requires going into the dark and mysterious world of *.pst files. These files – apparently – house all the Outlook data. E-mails, contacts, to-do lists, et. al are all located there.
I think I found an article that explains how to find them:
As for keeping the two files synced, I’m still thinking about a solution. In fact, I haven’t actually gotten the files from one computer to another but will be trying later today.
Any suggestions on keeping the two synced?
