Install on new PC

Post by jimjoeb »

My old PC died and I had to reset it to salvage files. Although save file and folders was checked, I lost all of my program files. I use Backup4All for my Outlook pst file only. Backup was to external hard drive. How do I restore the pst file using Backup4All and recreate the job?

On the new computer, please install Backup4all.
Then open in Backup4all the .bkc catalog file from the backup destination. That will recreate the backup job in Backup4all.
After you install Outlook, you can press Restore in Backup4all to get the .pst file back.
If the original .pst file path is different than the current path, make sure you indicate the correct restore folder path.
Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here:
