Copy your Microsoft Outlook archive

Tech TricksMany heavy Outlook users would be using the archiving system to make sure they don’t miss out on any crucial emails and delete them accidentally. But not many people know how to retrieve it.


To copy your archiving system, head to the C drive within Windows Explorer. Then click on users, and double click on whatever your computer name is. Then, click on My Documents, and then on the Outlook folder.


In that folder you should see a file called “Archive”, and it will be quite large. Make sure you copy it to a safe place, and you’ll be able to upload them in a new version of Outlook on a separate computer.
