    WindowsImageBackup does not backup .ost file?


    Dear all,


    I tried to restore my Windows 10 with Office 2010 from the WindowsImageBackup yesterday. I found that the Outlook needed to download my emails from the very beginning. My email size was 25G and all sat in my system drive. It would take 3 days to download everything as the Exchange server is not a local server. The actual size of the .ost file is around 50G.


    I thought that the WindowsImageBackup would contain all the data including the large .ost file in my system drive! Questions here:


    1. Is it true that the WindowsImageBackup does not back up the .ost file?

    2. How can I do a full backup with WindowsImageBakcup?


    Thanks and regards,

    Ken

    :)
     

  2. Changing the File Type on an Outlook *.OST file.

    I did a stupid thing and inadvertently changed the file type of an Outlook 2016 OST file to a PDF file. I have tried to change the type of file that *.OST is used by to Outlook but Windows 10 does not let me. Does anyone have any suggestions.

    Thanks

  3. Why are OST files not to be shadowed


    I don't want to delete the ost file. I want to delete the key in the registry which lists the ost file as one not to be shadowed.
     
  4. WindowsImageBackup does not backup .ost file?

    Win 10 WindowsImageBackup sub folder seems to have the incorrect time

    Win 10 Home

    Version 1703 with all available updates applied.

    Control Panel \ Backup and Restore (Windows 7)

    I have always thought the following represents the WindowsImageBackup folder structure.

    WindowsImageBackup folder Structure (starting from root of drive)

    • WindowsImageBackup
      • [Computer name]
        • Backup [date and time of backup]
          • A bunch of XML files
          • A bunch of .vhdx files
        • Catalog
          • BackupGlobalCatalog
          • GlobalCatalog
        • Logs
          • At least one .log file
        • SPPMetadataCache
          • At least one file with random letter/number combinations, separated by dashes, surrounded by {}’s
        • MediaId file
    In my case first sub folder (above) is not indicating any time that makes sense to me.

    It DOES contain the correct date.

    But not the time.

    I created a new WindowsImageBackup folder structure earlier today at 3:00 pm Central.

    But my folder ended up named "Backup 2017-08-21 195346"

    Anyone know what the "195346" means ?

    BTW, the date, time and zone are set correctly.

    I'm so confused.
