SBS2011 RWA - Shared folders

After logging on to our Remote Web Access - Shared Folders - I clicked to open a word doc (thru IE9) yellow bar Open or Download, I opened and made some editing changes - I clicked the Save Button - Where does the Doc save to?
If i close the Doc after save - i cannot find the edited doc locally or on server...

Thanks for your thoughts!

Good posts Thanks!
I am looking for the data that has been saved (apperently) by word with an open doc from the RWA Shared folders - ( I will now instruct end users to Down and UP load before editing and after editing doc)
However, I have a user who made changes to a doc and just clicked save and then closed doc - thinking it was saved back to RWA Folders - it was not - so where on the local drive has the doc been saved - no errors were reported when doc was saved. if it has been saved at all...

Thanks agian!

RWA does not have any control over where the doc is saved, but it is saved locally when you perform the process you described. In Windows 7, the default location is the user profile's "Downloads" folder. Older versions saved to the "Documents" folder by default. And Mac and Linux variants have their own behaviors. But, in short, this behaves no differently than any other downloaded and saved file from a browser. If you download a trial from a company website and just click "save" ...where does it save to? ...look there. Or, start using "save as" insead of "save" so you can specify the location.

I just connected to a clients SBS 2011 and downloaded a doc file. Edited it and saved, its not in the docs folder or downloads. I am trying to locate it now and am unable to find it by that name on the PC. I will post once I find it.

This is where I found my file on W7 -

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\8IQ4E0L2\document.docx

I cannot seem to locate the file... I do not have a Content.IE5 folder on the Win 7 Laptop...
But - I have spent long enough on this issue, saved file is gone and now at end of day - rewritten.
Thank very much for your posts.
