Talend Data Preparation
According to the version of Talend Data Preparation that you are using, your data is stored in different locations.

Talend Data Preparation

If you are a subscription user, nothing is saved directly on your computer. All the data from your datasets and preparations is stored remotely on the Talend Data Preparation server.

When using the live dataset feature, or preparing data stored on a database or a Hadoop file system (HDFS,) the sample data is cached on the Talend Data Preparation server for one hour.

Talend Data Preparation Free Desktop

Talend Data Preparation Free Desktop is meant to be able work locally on your computer, without the need of an internet connection. Therefore, when using a dataset from a local file such as a CSV or Excel file, the data is copied locally, in one of the following folders depending on your operating system:

  • Windows: C:\Users\<your_user_name>\AppData\Roaming\Talend\dataprep\store
  • OS X: /Users/<your_user_name>/Library/Application Support/Talend/dataprep/store
