How to copy or export the auto-complete file/list in Outlook?

As we know, Outlook will save the auto-complete cache automatically, and then list the auto-complete cache when you type related letters in the To/Cc/Bcc field in email as below screenshot shown. Have you ever thought of copying or exporting the auto-complete list file from Outlook? This article will introduce a method for you!

Copy or export the auto-complete file/list in Outlook

This method will guide you to open the folder containing the Outlook auto-complete list, and then copy or export these files from the folder.

1. Double click This PC on the desktop to open the file explorer, and display hidden files and folders with checking the hidden items option on the View tab in Windows 8/10. See screenshot:

Note: If you are working in Windows 7, Please: (1) double click Computer on the desktop to open the file explorer; (2) click Organize > Folder and search options; (3) check the Show hidden files, folders, and drivers option and click the OK button in the Folder Options dialog box. See screenshot:

2. Paste below folder path into the Address box in the file explorer, and press the Enter key.

Folder path of Outlook Auto-complete list: %username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\Roam Cache

Now the folder containing Outlook auto-complete list is opening. The DAT files whose names begin with Stream_Autocomplete are Outlook autocomplete list files.

2. Select all Outlook auto-complete list files, right click and select Copy from the right-clicking menu. See screenshot:

3. Go to the destination folder you will paste the copied Outlook auto-complete list files, and press Ctrl + V keys simultaneously to paste them in the folder.

Easily export senders and recipients from emails and add as contact group members in Outlook

Normally, we can copy a sender or a recipient from an email, and then add it as a contact group member with Add Members > From Address Book, and it seems no way to add multiple emails' multiple senders or recipients into a contact group in bulk. But, with the excellent Add to Groups feature of Kutools for Outlook, you can easily add multiple emails' senders or recipients into contacts groups in Outlook with several clicks only.

The instructions above were great and faster than using microsoft instructions. . . that didn't work at all for me.

The last step I couldn't copy the Stream_Autocomplete on top of the destination files on the new computer. I had to rename the existing Stream_Autocomplete files to something else, then copy the files into the folder, and rename them with the same name as the original files on the destination drive. If I didn't do it that way my Office 365 Outlook automatically recreated the Stream_Autocomplete files to their original file name(s). 
Thanks for the instructions!
