I am looking for a free Windows tool for backing up either my Exchange mailbox, which I access via Outlook (including calendar and contacts), or the whole Exchange database.

Using the built-in Windows Backup (wbadmin.msc) is not an option, because

  • It does not allow backing up only Exchange. One must choose to backup the whole system to do it.
  • I did not manage to perform it because of strange errors (something about missing system writer)

This Python script can backup user's mailbox including calendar and contacts into a PST file. Python and win32com are required to use it.
