I have set up a Google Apps profile in Outlook 2007. Having copied my outlook.NK2 file from the old profile, I'm not quite sure about the .NK2 file in the new profile.

Where can I find it? Can I replace the .NK2 file in my Google Apps profile with the old one?

You don't say which OS.

In Windows XP, it is here:

C:\Documents and Settings\%UserProfile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

In Vista/Windows7, it is here:


Yes, you can copy the old one to the new profile, but the name of the file, Outlook.NK2 will match your profile name, which is Outlook by default, so if you created a new profile name, make sure that the NK2 file matches it.
