i have an UI Element :


download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups

I cant figure out the title/label I need to give this UI element. The element is used for choosing a location for files that will be saved if Save button is clicked. Usually in software I use title "Save as" for saving files, but that is common as a title for selecting a location:

Where? Location? Path?

Just to clarify: is saving a separate action to selecting the save location? – dhmstark Aug 14 '12 at 13:05
I like "Location" but maybe an idea to extend it to "File Location:", "Folder Location:". – Hoshts Aug 14 '12 at 13:55
Dose it have to short for any reason? Could you not use "select location" or "choose location"? – user17077 Aug 14 '12 at 14:00
dhmholley: Yes saving is a seperate action. Also in the selected folder will also Created lots of Files and Folders. – Sonne Aug 15 '12 at 9:58

This probably depends a bit on the other functionality of the form, and your general persistence model.

Without additional information, I'd say "Save As" or "Saved as" wins simply because it's common.
