Back up local folders to my hard drive.

I want to back up my local folders on my PC to my hard drive. I can see how to do this with individual emails by using the "save as" option but despite searching online I can't see how to copy/backup my local folders in the same way. Is it possible to do this rather than copy every individual email to a new folder on the hard drive?

Which email client are you using, if outlook there's only one file to copy.

Investigate MailStore Home:

https://www.mailstore.com/en/products/mailstore-home/

I wouldn't be without it.

Yes it is outlook. Not sure what you mean by there is only one file to copy. Could you explain please. Thank you.

Outlook stores all its mail in a .pst file, so to back it up you just need to copy that one file.

However, MailStore Home is a much more powerful way of backing up your email.  Check it out.

I should have added, MailStore Home is FREE for personal use.
