Does anyone know if iCloud still strips out all the data from Outlooks calendar & contact folders & archives it?

Yes, it does. We'll, at least the stripping part. The data is moved to the iCloud folders.
Thanks Diane. When I first setup iCloud about a year ago it created a whole bunch of archive folders in the Outlook hierarchy, if I recall correctly, directly above Inbox. It created archives for individual categories in Contacts such as travel, restaurants & friends etc and was a real mess. I had iCloud turned off, archive folders deleted & Outlook rebuilt into its original state. I've been looking at CodeTwo Sync for iCloud as I would like to be able to sync with my iPad & iPhone again. Looking at the screenshots from the developer http://www.codetwo.com/sync-for-icloud/screenshots/ they don't appear to show any archive folders such as were created on my system. Noting your reply am I to understand that whilst it will strip & place all of the data into iCloud by using CodeTwo Sync it will automatically be repopulated back into its original location within Outlook? Will I therefore retain the usual functionality of things like Windows Address book & Autofill?

I've never seen the archive folders - just may mailbox folders and the iCloud folders. I'm not really sure where they came from - could be iCloud or it could be your normal autoarchive folders.

Yes, codetwo sync will put a copy back in the outlook folders and all of the functions should work. The address book and autocomplete (assuming that is what you mean by autofiull) should work with iCloud - right click on the iCloud folder and choose Properties then enable it as an address book.

You can set Outlook's address book to show these contacts first. See http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/icloud-outlook-problems-syncing-contacts/

Thanks so much....all works perfectly now with CodeTwo setup.
