I am using Microsoft's Backup utility and have two questions.

First, I would like to backup my My Documents folder and am trying to decide
whether to include these directories:
C:\Documents and Settings\Drew Neilson\My Documents\filelib
- I think this has to do with AOL IM, because a folder inside of it has
the same name as my AOL IM screen
name.
C:\Documents and Settings\Drew Neilson\My Documents\My Deliveries
C:\Documents and Settings\Drew Neilson\My Documents\My Received Files
- I am assuming "My Received Files" has something to do with Windows
Messenger and/or Office XP.
Files sent to me from other users on the Internet via Windows Messenger
or Office XP probably are
automatically downloaded into this folder by default, no?

Second, as I said earlier I have Office XP and also MS Money 2004. I want
the My Documents folder, my Money information, and my Outlook information
backed up automatically--weekly. I can plainly see that Backup can do this
automatically with My Documents, but I do not know how to get these results
with Outlook (SP3) or Money.

If Backup automatically takes care of Outlook and Money data, then I'd be
all set.
If not,...
- I'd configure Outlook to weekly backup to a .pst file inside My
Documents, which would be subsequently
backed up by Backup.
- If Outlook cannot do it automatically, every week I'd have to
manually save a .pst file inside My
Documents, which would then be backed up automatically by Backup.
- The same situation and choices would exist for Money.



Thanks again everyone, all the imput on maintenance utilities is really
helpful.

MSBackup allows you to choose individual files to backup along with folders.
When you have the backup window open, the folders appear on the left, and the
files should appear on the right. You will need to find where your pst file
is located and where your my money file is located and select them.

As far as the folders in My Docs, the "My recieved files" is from messenger.
I am not sure which program is using the "My deliveries" folder though.
