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.

Sample data is cached temporarily on the remote Talend Data Preparation server, in order to improve the product responsiveness. In addition, CSV and Excel datasets are stored permanently on the remote Talend Data Preparation server.

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
