Outlook File Locations

Autocomplete Cache:
On Vista - Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook
On XP - C:\Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

When using Windows 2000/XP, Outlook stores *.pst, *.ost, *.pab, *.oab, and extend.dat in
C:\Documents and Settings\(username)\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.
Extend.dat, Hotmail, IMAP, and MSN Connector message stores can not be moved.
All other Outlook configuration files are stored in
C:\Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook and cannot be moved.

Vista replaces Documents and Settings folder path with a Users path.
As a result, in Vista you'll find Outlook stores the PST and OST, in
Hotmail, IMAP, and Live Connector message stores can not be moved but POP3 and Exchange offline or cache storage can be moved to other locations.
All other Outlook configuration files are stored in
C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook and cannot be moved.

If your mail profile is called "Outlook", your nk2-file is called outlook.nk2.
If you named your mail profile "Maslan" then your nk2-file is called maslan.nk2.
