Hi Officer Tango

The NK2 file isn't used any more in 2010, this article shows how to import one:

Ahh ok.  No, Outlook 2007 should have it in:

%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

Just copy paste that line into your run box and it'll open the correct location

1st set "show hidden files and folder" via folder options.

To locate  .Nk2 file = C:\ Documents and Settings \ ( your User name folder) \ Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook folder,  under Outlook folder you will find .nk2 file.

Rename .nk2 file with the current Outlook profile name (eg. if your pst file is john.pst than rename .nk2 as john.nk2)

If Vista %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook

To be able to see Local Settings & Application data you need to enable "View hidden folders" in folder options.
