I'm in the process of building my website and want to know where on the computer are the files for the pages stored. I'd like to access them to save externally on a dvd. Thanks.

OpenElement creates a folder called openElement in your document folder.

In this folder you will find all your projects

It depends ...

When you create the project, you can place it anywhere, see screenshot.
Standard is as Hobby001 mentioned.
But later you may move it to some place else. Even rename it.
Your real project file is  projectname.ope
Do not lose that file!

More info to come:
When you *Export to Folder* it will be placed @ C:\Users\your name\MyDocuments\openElement\your project_name_Upload. Or equivalent to the user name.
Each next version (inside openElement) will have a new directory/folder, automatically sequentially numbered.
That can not be changed.
Those files may also be transferred to the server with filezilla, if you prefer to.

When your c: drive becomes full, it will give you some obnoxious information.
You may delete all these directories then.
Except the porject source files, if you use the default project location (Hobby001).
And -important- also clean the Byte Bucket, that frees the 'deleted' space.
That is Windows system specific.

Also, do not delete any *Folder* in the oe WebTool.
Use the explorer / file manager.
And reload the project.

I would not recommend a CD for backup, better use a stick or some external drive else.
May be a cloude? That makes your object fire-or-theft-safe.

To create a back-up file of a project,

Project Tab, Other, Back-up Project.

This action will crate a zip file dropped into openElement directory in your documents.

This file is easyier to carry
