When I open SharePoint Designer, I can usually depend on using the "All Files" tab to find what i need. But I've never really understood what this thing is. I can't seem to find a similar file structure anywhere in the IIS site, or in the 14 hive.
There are other file structures as well, for instance, opening a sharepoint site in Explorer mode (path being
http://servername/), or browsing to it in explorer via \\servername\davwwwroot
for more information on davwwwroot that i dont understand: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/21706142/what-is-davwwwroot
- Do these file structures actually exist anywhere?
- are they related?
- Is there some key concept I am missing that's causing me to feel like i dont understand them, or are they just a tool some sharepoint developer thought would be useful?
