Outlook 2007 still use NK2 file, You need to import it

copy the NK2 file from:
C:\Documents and Settings\[User Profile]\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

Make sure that the .nk2 file is in the following folder:
%appdata%\Microsoft\Outlook
Note The .nk2 file must have the same name as your current Outlook 2013 profile. By default, the profile name is "Outlook." To check the profile name, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click Mail.
In the Mail Setup dialog box, click Show Profiles.

2. Click Start, and then click Run.

3. In the Open box, type outlook.exe /importnk2, and then click OK. This should import the .nk2 file into the Outlook 2013 profile.

Dear liorkr

If I understand you correctly

In Outlook 2007, copy the nk2 file from
C:\Documents and Settings\[User Profile]\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

Copy the file to Outlook 2013
%appdata%\Microsoft\Outlook

I have to make sure both are having the same profile.

The copy the outlook 2013 computer
Under the run command,
type outlook.exe /importnk2, and then click OK.

Is this correct?

The Nk2 file is **.nk2?

Please advise

Dear Expert,

I tried looking into outlook 2007 but I can't see any nk2 file.

I have attached the screen shot of the entire directory where the nk2 file is suppose to be there.

Please advise
