you will have a .m2 hidden folder in you home directory

what does the home directory mean? my jenkins setup home directory or workspace of my project home directory? my jenkins installed at d:\jenkins on my windows 2008 server.
your user home directory i.e. ${user.home}

e.g on Windows: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\.m2
On Mac / Linux it should be in your ~/.m2/repository folder. Inside that folder you'll have many subfolders that will contain all downloaded artifacts.

Also, if you want to avoid re-downloading all those artifacts, make sure that -U flag is NOT present. -U will force update of all dependencies regardless whether or not they have been previously downloaded.

Why would you want to download those files manual and move them someplace else? Maven is great at managing dependencies and helping developers avoid manually adding libraries to their projects. Maven can get most of your dependencies of whichever version you desire. Why would you want to bypass that?
