Outlook 2007 Client loosing quick type addresses

In Outlook 2007 some users will loose the quick type addresses that are stored after sending an email to each address.  When you create a new message and then type a letter or 2 of the person you want to send it to and it will auto populate since you sent email to this address in the past.
I have had a few users where this info disappears and they have to start all over.  Is there a place I can recover this or a file I should backup occasionally?

The file that control this is the .NK2 file in Documents and Settings/User/Application Data/Microsoft/Outlook
If they "lost" their quick type addresses, it's not likely you'll be able to recover them, however saving this file periodically should help prevent this issue from occurring in the future.

I just checked C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

Files under this directory are:

ExchangeProfile -  Office Data File
ExchangeProfile - XML Document
ExchangeProfile.srs
OutlPrnt

Also, the link I provided has an NK2 editing program. I recommend giving it a shot as it automatically finds the default NK2 file for you.
Ok,  it was the first file listed,
ExchangeProfile.NK2 - Office Data File

I will look into this today
