The default location is C:\SmartPlant Foundation Server Files. You can change this location when Server Manager is run for the first time, or you can move it later.

Backups - Used for database backups that are created by the Upgrade Wizard.

FileService - Used by the SPFViewDir virtual directory and for operations involving checking in/out files associated with documents.

Although this is named FTP_Vaults, all vault file transfers in the current version are via HTTP.

SPFWebClient_Sites - Keeps all Web Client sites in one location for easier management.

Temp - Used to create subfolders and log files for the server and for debugging.
