Silly rabbit, auto complete in Outlook isn’t a safe way to store contact info.

Windows

We had a new sales guy start today and he needed his “contacts” transferred to his office machine from his laptop.  Turns out his contacts are actually just the output from Outlook’s auto complete feature.  Turns out this info is stored in a .nk2 file locally.

After poking around some forums I found a program that will parse this file into a CSV so you upload them to Outlook as real Contacts.   I downloaded it and it worked great.  It puts a shameless plug into each contact you export/upload but I didn’t have to pay for the software and it worked well and fast.
