Note Personal Folders Backup only backs up .PST files. If you have a Microsoft Exchange Server mailbox, your server mailbox folders are likely backed up regularly by your server administrator. This tool only provides settings that individual users can configure. Therefore, we do not recommended it as an enterprise back-up solution.
