Where is Outlook's contacts file stored?

Does anyone know the name and location of Outlook's contacts file on the user's disk when you're not using an Exchange server? I assume it's in the D&S/username/Local Settings/Application Data/Microsoft/Outlook directory?

Yeah that's where mine is stored when I'm at home. it's the outlook.pst file - within there is the contacts file.

You can also export just the contacts file -> import/export -> export to a file -> contacts

X - you have the location correct, but it is not a separate file for "contacts", it is all in the local *.PieceofShiT file.
