OK, I found the path and understood how it works (at leat the basics).

The files are in /var/maharadata. I do know if it is correct folder/path for all.

Each file is renamed for the ID in  tbl_artefact and because it I could not find the files.

Thanks everyone.

Heh, glad you found it Wink looking at the code in artefact/file/lib.php is the best way to work out where the file data goes.
