Hi All,

I have just joined a new company and have discovered that although there email (MS exchange) is backup up, each user has archived .PST files held on C drive which is not backuped up. Any ideas how I might sort this problem out. I can access the C drive of client PC's from my file server but I have the old chestnut of the files being in use while outlook is running.

Any ideas?

A simple way would be to schedule a simple task on each client machine to shutdown Outlook in the middle of the night, and then do the backup from the server.

You could even use something like PsKill to terminate Outlook remotely.
