Part III: Beyond the Basics > File Management

Chapter 13. File Management

File management is the art of keeping your data logically organized and healthy. We say art, because there are hundreds of approaches to managing files. Some work better than others; some people prefer one method to the next. The key is to develop a routine and follow it regularly. If you receive a lot of mail every day, sort and cull it every day, using Mail rules to automate repetitive tasks.

Keeping your data healthy necessitates either deleting or archiving items that are no longer pertinent. It also means making routine backups, complete enough to restore Outlook to a working state, with minimal reconfiguration. This includes not only data, but also key configuration files that are spread throughout your filesystem and Registry. Folders, files, locations, and contents all need to be understood and used properly to maintain Outlook in racing form.
