    I am working to solve some auto-completion issues. I found some information on the Microsoft website regarding the .NK2 file and how it is used for this feature. The issue is I cannot find this file on my computer. From what I have read the file should be in %appdata%\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook.

    Have also tried

    C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook from the run command, browsing manually, and DOS. I see the same 3 files no matter how I search.

    The following things are already true:

    I am showing hidden files and folders
    I am not hiding known file extensions
    I am not hiding operating system files
    I am an administrator of the machine I am searching on.
    Auto Complete is enabled under Tools\Options\Email Options\Advanced Email options (and is working but clearing each day so I have to start over)

    I know the fix for the clearing issue, but I want to find the file so I can try and restore some of the cache after it is fixed.

    Is there a possibility it would be somewhere else? or stored somewhere with my profile on the exchange server? Anything you have to offer would be appreciated.


    Kacy :D
