By default C:\Documents and Settings\ is the path given, but this is normally put on System Drive.

Suppose if you have got OS installed on Drive D then it will be on Drive D:\Documents and Settings\ . In simple words it would on the system drive.

Also you can check the exact path of the profile from below

To locate the list of local user profiles, right-click My Computer, click Properties, and then click Settings on the Advanced tab under User Profile.

C:\Documents and Settings\ - folder in which all user profiles are located by default
\\server\profiles\ - shared folder which was used to save roaming user profile
C:\MandatoryProfile - folder which we used to create mandatory profile
C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\ - path to the defualt user profile


c:\documents and settings\%username%
Username is a variable, and will be whatever your windows username is.

In Windows XP you have different folders in different languages, for example "documents and settings" in english and "Dokumente und Einstellungen" in german.

You can use "%userprofile%" to locate the right Folder for the current user.
