    How to use your My PC Filing Cabinet to backup your AOL Email


    To backup mail in your AOL saved on my pc filing cabinet:

    • On your computer search for a file called {AOL screen name}.abi
    • Go up one directory to your main AOL folder
    • Highlight the organize folder, then go to the menu bar and select Edit -> Copy
    • Use my computer to go to the place, for example a flash drive, where you want to save your backup copy
    • Go to the menu bar and select Edit -> Paste
    • When the copy finishes, put the backup copy in a safe place.
