Ok, this may not be a question for Outlook only, but probably for any microsoft explorer related product, but this is where I need help.

Where are the autofill entries stored on the hard drive.  i mean when I start typing an address in the To: field in a new email, where does it store the entries if I have autofill turned on.  The reason I ask is that my comp. crashed and i had to format everything, but before I did, I backed up the entire C: drive...would like to have all my auto complete entries back...

Search the drive for *.nk2 files.  The autocomplete entries are stored here, I believe they will be named after the profile.
