Locating outlook.pst in Vista
Hi

I've got a very strange issue in Vista while trying to locate the
outlook.pst file.

(for purpose of this message the user logged in is Matt with full Admin
access)

Outlook itself puts the file in
C:\Users\Matt\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\outl ook.pst. I know this as
when I look at the advanced settings on Personal Folders it tells me the
location. This is also the location I find it in on other PC's in the
office.

However - when I view the directory structure under Vista in Computer there
is no "c:\users\Matt" directory at all.

I managed to do a search for outlook.pst and Vista found it in C:\Documents
and Settings\Matt\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook. I
created a shortcut to this and can open the directory, however when I try to
access the C:\Documents and Settings directory from the left hand menu in
Computer, I get an access denied message as though it doesnt exist.

We have another laptop in the office running Vista Home Premium and there is
a C:\Users\<user> directory and the outlook.pst can easily be found.

Please can anyone help and advise as to why we are unable to find this
outlook.pst file and why the <user> directory is not showing under c:\users.

Thanks
Phil
