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!

its permission issue .. not the file is missing or somthing..
if he using vista be sure that he runs outlook in administrator right's privilege and that by right click on outlook shortcut and choose run as administator

if xp.. just be sure that he got administration rights to open such these software and edit
