Where does Microsoft SharePoint Workspace 2010 keep files on my local machine?

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?

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.

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.
