✔ Best Answer

If you are wanting to back up your inbox messages to a removable storage device, use the Outlook "Export" tool:

File >> Import and Export >> Export to a file >> Personal Folder File (.pst)

However, using a pen drive/flash drive for storing backups is not advised as they are not reliable enough for that. Use an external hard drive or a second internal hard drive instead.

If all you want is your email, then do as Phil suggested. The wizard is pretty straightforward and will walk you through step-by-step.
