    I built a new computer for someone and am trying to backup Outlook 2010 from their old PC to this new one. I saved the PST file and all of the files located in "C:\Users\Charlie\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook". I see all the emails, tasks, etc., but there were folders created for organization that didn't get transferred over. All the emails that were in them I believe got lumped together in the Inbox. What did I miss that I didn't get these folders?

    During the import proces you are asked which folders and where to restore them. That maybe the cause. Just erase the newly created PST folder and restore again with the right options.

    Had same experience but mine is from Outlook express to MS Outlook, I also lost the organization/folder of my mail and contacts. I redo every arrangement as my solution.

    Didn't you use the built in tool? That should save all folders as well.

    Re : Backing Up Outlook

    Hello,

    You can use the automatic tool for taking Outlook 2010 backup. Microsoft provides the automatic built in add-in to backup Outlook data. It is called as Microsoft Outlook Personal Folders Backup tool. To add it in Outlook 2010 check the information provided here -
