Where dows my_email.vcf file for Outlook VCard file

After I redirected the user's home dir to different server becasue of the physical move to different office location, user complains that his outlook freezes up saying "Can't create file: xxxx.vcf. Right click the fodler you wnat to crate the file in, then click properties on the shrtcut menut to check your permissions for the folder."

I would like to know where to find his VCF file. It sounds like the home dir  redirect did. so I searched in his home dir contents.. it's not there.. where should I look.. Thx in advance. :)

Hello myinzu,

VCF file could be anywhere.  It may in a hidden folder, so you have to unhide hidden folders to be able to find with Windows Search.  In Windows XP, open Windows Explorer or any folder.  Click on Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders".  If you want to see system files as well, unclick Hide protected operating system files.   Click OK.

Hope this helps!
