Karma Bank Profile folder

Does anyone see a folder called profile ex) http://www.sample.com/Vanilla/profile/karmabank/1/sample_member_name?
I am trying to change the karma bank balance for myself and other members already assigned with starting balance.
It seems there is a profile file created when starting balance value was written initially but its not showing up in ftp directory. I tried force showing hidden files in Filezilla but profile dir or file still not showing up.
Has anyone successfully changed the balance manually for members even after already assigned with initial starting balance with Karma bank plugin?
Thanks in advance for help.

    @cnpark70 you need to ask the question under the plugin page "Ask a Question" so it is assigned to that plugin.

    Second you are making the mistake of thinking because you have an url scheme like profile/karmabank/1/sample_member_name there is going to be folders and directory structure to reflect that. This isn't how modern frameworks work, and is merely a coincidence that early webserver map the directory structure by default. They needn't do that at all.

    You are not going to change the starting balance by looking in any folder. It is in the database. However as it is already assigned, you best bet is to simply reward them (negative) amount, manually. Unless you want to clear their entire balance and transaction history, you only really get a starting balance when they join however.

    grep is your friend.
