I have used Microsoft SharePoint Workspace 2010 to collect files from a SharePoint server.

I am trying to determine where these files are located on my local machine.  I am assuming they are in some type of container file.

Does anyone know the location?

Hi,
which client OS?
It is stored in your local user profile folder.
If it is Windows 7:
Best way is to open WIndows Explorer, click in the favorites on desktop and then you should be able to see it on your user name.

I am using Windows 7.

I did find the article that you referenced earlier.  My problem is that I don't have the "SharePoint Sites" icon in my favorites.

Hi,
the content is in the "Workspaces" folder, not the SharePoint sites.

I am not getting a response that is helpful.  Is there another group I should direct this to?

Since I could not figure this out, I ended using Microsoft Outlook.  I was able to mount the SharePoint site to Outlook, then collect the data.
