“Local Drafts” folder location

I’ve been asked this question a lot, and thought I would post a quick note about it. When you are editing a file within SharePoint, and asked if you want to save it in your local drafts folder, this is what it means – in your user profile directory, under your documents, there is a folder, or one that will automatically get created, called SharePoint Drafts. For example, my local drafts folder on my Vista machine is:

C:\Users\gvarosky\Documents\SharePoint Drafts
