Outlook 2010 nk2 file

In earlier versions of outlook, when I got a user a new box, I would move their nickname cache.  Now I'm migrating users to Outlook 2010 and I can't find it.  Now I can import it using outlook/importnk2, but I want to know where the autocomplete is stored.

Thanks

For Outlook 2010....

First, there is no more NK2 file.  The actual file you are looking for is located is:

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\RoamCache\Stream_Autocomplete*.dat.

Deleting this file will not clear your AutoComplete list.  As soon as you start Outlook 2010 the file will reappear, along with any bad addresses.  So how does one clear the entire list?

Use one of the methods listed below to reset the Outlook nickname cache for Microsoft Outlook 2010.

Method 1
1.With Outlook 2010 open, click File (BackStage), and then click Options.
2.Click the Mail tab.
3.Under Send Messages, click Empty Auto-Complete List.
Outlook will generate a new nickname cache.

Method 2
1.Click Start, and then click Run.
2.Start Outlook by using the /CleanAutoCompleteCache switch.
For example: Outlook.exe /CleanAutoCompleteCache
Note If Outlook is not installed in the default location, you will need to point to the path of Outlook.exe.
This helped me !
