Back up monthwise/yearly in outlook 2003/2007

I am talking about back up system of outlook. Now I am just copying the .pst file & saving it another HDD/DVD. But, this is very problemetric when needs to import/restore, then I’ve to import total .pst file.

Now to avoid this, is there any way to break the .pst file monthwise or yearly?
I mean, I want to store emails monthwise, so that that if I need a mail to restore, then just import the emails of specific month & I think this will save my time.

Thankx in advance.


You might try searching through Google for this information, or forums that cater to Outlook users. But if I were to guess, a .pst file has a header and a footer, so one can’t simply split the file. You’d have to look into exporting by date range.
