Default Outlook 2002:, how to remove backup?

What created the Outlook backup file? I would look in that program's folder
to start.

| I use a third party widget which pulls data from my Outlook 2002 and
| shows them on my desktop. This works fine, but for a lot of double
| entries. I think this is because deleted data are still in an Outlook
| backup file. (the double entries were caused by wrongly synchen with
| a Palm handheld).
|
| I emptied the deleted items folder.
|
| I have done a search and found outlook.pst, but no backup outlook.pst.
| I have "show hidden and system files" checked.
|
| Googling gives a lot of hits, but they are all about how to backup
| Outlook data, not about removing the backup itself.
|
| Can some tell me how to remove the backup?
| Thank you.
|
| (I don't use Outlook for mail, I am only interested in removing
| calendar data).

I haven't got a clue.
From my search on the Internet about the subject, I may have drawn the wrong
conclusions. I thought outlook always made a backup file

I stand corrected.

Outlook has an add-in provided by Microsoft that is an optional download
from their Office site that you have to manually invoke to create a backup.
No automatic backup is ever created - even running scanpst.exe gives you the
option to create a backup but it is not automatic.

Thank you. I was obviously misinformed.
