    how do I save drafts outside of contribute?

      I keep having trouble with my connection and do not want to start over with my drafts. I cannot reconfigure connection with active drafts. Is there a way to save them.?

          Drafts are saved on your local drive, so you can save them by copying those files elsewhere. In Windows you'll find them in the Documents and Settings folder, under your user profile, e.g. C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Macromedia\Contribute 3\Sites\Site1

          In that specific numbered Site folder will be the drafts and new pages you're working on. The problem you may run into is that the remote web server has a record of what files you have checked out. When you start editing a page, Contribute places a .lck file on the web server to prevent other users editing the same page. That .lck file contains your username, and they're all going to have to be in synch with what you have in the local Site folder.
