Default Best Backup to CD for Outlook?

Given all the google hits and the MSKBs on backing up Outlook mail and
folders, (to CD/DVD) does anyone have a preferred method that they use to do
this--and is there any facet of 3rd party like Nero or Roxio that makes it
easier?

Tia,

Chad Harris

outlook has a plug-in to backup the pst file anywhere. I let it bu to
D: and once in a (too long) while I backup that D: file.
Can do that with any prog.
Go to microsoft.com and find the plug in

The easiest approach that I know is to just drag the PST to the CD drive and
let Windows XP's built-in burning feature do the rest. Without Windows XP,
I'd vote for Nero.

There is no set location for a PST, although the default location is the
(hidden) folder
%UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
