Well, it depends on where you mapped your drive to: by which I mean, to
which file system did you map it?

If it was QDLS, for example, you should be able to find your folder
using WRKFLR.  If it was one of the other file systems in the IFS, you
should be able to track it down using WRKLNK (work with object links).
You won't find it in a library, though.

But you say you _can_ find the documents: doesn't that mean you know
where they are?
