Best Answer

The saves folder is in a hidden folder in application data called .minecraft. The directory to the folder is: My documents/Application Data/.minecraft. There is a folder in .minecraft called saves which contains your saved worlds. If this folder does not exist, then perhaps you have not yet played any worlds on that computer or somebody has deleted the folder.
