Backup Favorites and the Outlook NK2 file

By | December 20, 2006

On our network we are redirecting some things but not all folders.
Users always start yelling about I am missing my favorites or when
I type in Outlook I do not get the "names" to popup.
So the script below will copy these important files to a backup location.
I made everything modular because this script does some good things.
1. It will detect who the currently logged on user is.
2. It performs a file copy using the %userprofile% variable.
3. Lastly, it checks to see if a folder exists. (I know this one is not that exciting)
