I have a simple question.

I have saved a site in my favourites and made it available offline to a depth of 3 and as it's mostly text it saved it fine.
My problem is i have NO Idea where on my Hard Drive this folder is ?

I've gone to docs+settings-user-favourites,but it doesn't seem to be in there and i was about 20 megs saved and 20 megs isn't there.
This is a single user PC[ME]with NO OTHER accounts and running XP Pro SP 2 with all current updates,and i'm on 2 meg ADSL.

I would just use search instead of bothering everyone,but i don't know what EXACTLY i should be searching for ?And no idea what to type in the search box.
I intend to delete the site from my faves after i've saved the info to disc as i just needed an easy way to save a site,which is why i chose this method.I've tried HTT website copier and others but i can't understand them,hence my faves.Thanks everyone. :tazz:

If you were on a web page and clicked favourites, add to favourites, make available offline, that's where it should be

Yes Keith, but where is that on my hard drive ?

I want to remove it remember ? and save it to disc.

ie;

C\dos+settings\user\favourites just as an example

What is the usual pathway to the folder where XP puts these available offline folders.C\ ? what comes next ?

Probably didn't explain it very well the first time,hope that makes it clearer. :tazz:

I clicked search, favorites (note spelling), include hidden and system files, you get two with stars, one is the folder, which you should be able to copy
