Re: Copy To Application Data Folders
The inability to copy the nk2 file is likely a Vista file protection
problem, you have renamed the current nk2?
I was refering to the Import/Export of native OL data which you stated you
were going to do, and as such is the wrong method of moving OL data. A quick
search of any of the OL groups would have confirmed this.
The sttings I refer to are those in the pst file, Exporting/Importing loses
these, together with rules They are *not* the autocomplete data.
