I've been using the official MS Outlook backup addin for a year or so. I just added a new external drive, but even though I can change the setting in the backup addin, it still backs up to my old drive. Even if I tell it to backup to C:\ and it shows C:\Outlook Backup as the destination directory, when it actually runs it still backs up to the old location.

I can't find where this is stored. I've scanned the registry, done a full content search on my hd, even tried the scanpst.exe utility, in case it's in there somewhere.

Does anyone know where the backup addin stores its data, and how I can repair this?

I'm using Outlook 2007 w/Vista Ultimate
