Most saved files are in the My Documents folders
Some are in special folders that programs install (like Quicken, TurboTax, etc)
Others are in email clients.
Finally, a lot of folks save stuff on their Desktops
At work we just save the personal stuff out of the profiles in the Documents and Settings folder (minus the Windows stuff that isn't needed). This includes the All Users profile so that we save any Shared Documents. Then we look for the email and the special stuff that the user wants saved.
But all of this is predicated on the fact that we're going to make a DVD for the customer - so it's best to keep the size down. If size isn't an issue, you can image the hard drive and use an image explorer to extract the data at your leisure. Tnis will also provide a 100% backup of the system "in case" the user forgets something vital.
