What software would you recommend for me to backup A laptop data and duplicate and / or transfer the same to B laptop? FYI both laptops are Lenovo T61.

    Hello, you could create a network or shared folder and then use software like synctoy to backup/syncronize files between them:

    If you want to automate the process you could use FreeFileSync software:

    1) For Outlook 2010 on Windows XP the default location is;
    C:Documents and Settings%username%My DocumentsOutlook Files
     2) For Outlook 2010 on Windows Vista or Windows 7 the default location is;
    C:Users%username%DocumentsOutlook Files
