Hmm I tried change the output directory to D:\ but it doesn't save the files to
that. I found the .pov and output image on user\AppData\Local\Temp directory
where PovRay message shows. Opening the .pov I found the df3 path finally. It is
....user\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.79\preview\smoke.df3"
Windows 7.

Thanks for the response.
