    cant find .nk2 pesky files on machine

    Afternoon chaps and chapesses,

    I am trying to locate the Outlook 2007 autocomplete file (.nk2) which much exist somewhere locally on a PC which when outlook is running the autocomplete function works as it should.

    I have tried C:\docs & sets\profile name\application data\outlook where it should be located, but there is no .nk2 file there.

    Can anyone else help me on this please?

    Cheers

    AJT

    windows search inc all hidden files and directories ?

    Any registry keys that may give you an idea of nk2 files location ?

    Can't remember which level it is, but you should have both a roaming and local folder option, it should be in the roaming side of it.

    Hi mac_shinobi, yep the only show in the registry is the folder for the file extension for some reason

    You mean on windows 7, if so then the path will be something along the lines of :

    C:\Users\<Username>\AppData --> which gives you the local and Roaming​ folders

    That's the one

    But it's XP, so it *should* be exactly where andy described.
