Where are the user templates?

Last Modified: 2012-09-01
I have an SBS server which suddenly doesn't show the "employee template" i created years ago in the Manage Templates section of Server Management, nor does it appear in the choices list when running the new user wizard, BUT...

the disabled "employee template" user is still in the SBS users list and when i try to create a new template, the new user template wizard tells me that the a template with the name "employee template" already exists when i try to create/recreate one. I don't know if it's choking on the existing account or if the template actually exists and i just can't see it... hence my question:

Where the hell are the templates stored by default?
