Anyone knows the location of temporary files that Export-SPWeb uses when exporting sites? One of our servers ran out of drive space when exporting the site and now I can't find the files created by the cmdlet.

It uses the environment variable %tmp% (not %temp%). If I remember right, Todd Klindt talked about it in this netcast: http://toddklindt.com/blog/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=313.

you can specify the path

export-spweb -identity http://host -path D:\Backups\file.cmp -force

If you do not have space on disk, you can create shared folder and give rights to write.

Or just use a drive analyse tool to find what's eating up your space. I usually use Sequoiaview: w3.win.tue.nl/nl/onderzoek/onderzoek_informatica/visualization/… –  Jasper Feb 23 '12 at 10:01
