vCard, also known as a virtual business card, is a file format used for storing and exchanging contact information such as name, address, phone number, and email. It has .vcf extension and hence is also known as VCF file. It is convenient to merge multiple VCF files into one for easier management and organization of your contacts.

How to Combine VCF Files into One File – Two Methods

Here, in this article, we have two solutions to merge VCF files:

  1. Manual Method – The manual solution uses CMD in your Windows operating system to get the job done. It does the most basic operation of combining the vCard files, so do not expect any sort of customization.
  2. Professional Method – The professional method is a smart tool that first de-duplicates the VCF files, then merges them into one single VCF file.

So, make sure you know your requirements before implementing a method.

How to Merge Multiple VCF Files into One Using CMD

To merge multiple vCard (.vcf) files into a single file using the Command Prompt (CMD), you can use the following steps:

  • Open the Command Prompt: Press the Windows key + R, type cmd and click on OK.

start cmd

  • Navigate to the directory where your vCard files are located: Use the “cd” command to change to the directory where your VCF files are located, for example, “cd C:\Users\admin\Downloads“.

go to vcf file destination

  • Use the “copy” command to merge the vCard files: Type “copy /b 1file.vcf + 2file.vcf + 3file.vcf finalfile.vcf” and press Enter. Replace “1file.vcf”, “2file.vcf”, and “3file.vcf” with the names of your vCard files, and “finalfile.vcf” with the name you want for the merged file.
