How can I locate where the .FEX is stored in the system? Our system is set-up to use a file share between server clusters but I can't seem to locate where IBFS:/WFC/Repository is actually located.

The Repository is a database, so you cannot access it as if it were a disk-based file system.

It's a special Information Builder's File System (hence the "IBFS" part).

IBFS:/WFC/Repository will be pointing to an RDBMS server. You should login as admin and check in Client Administration Console to see the server details.

This is where you lose me. I've found the list of procedures in the underlying database table WF_REPOSOBJ and it lists their PRT_PATH. But I can't find the actual coding for each procedure. From an admin console standpoint the ibi_webfocus_client_root_directory settings says it's located on the c drive but I don't see the actual .fex coding anywhere. One of our developers deleted hundreds of hours worth of work. We are trying to determine what we can get back from backups.

The procedures are "blobs" in the database table - if you see a list of procedures in the table, the code should be in the blobs. The only easy way to view the code is to use App Studio or Dev Studio. Some people may know how to decode the blob but I don't know that kind of stuff.
