A long time ago we needed a script to remove the cached contacts in Microsoft Outlook. After some research we found that these were stored in a NK2 file in the user profile directory. To run the script please close Outlook and create a new batch file (text file with the extension of .bat), or download the file below.
Please not this will create a backup of the NK2 file so everything can be reverted.
