Windows 7: The sfv file does not appear in C:\

[solved] The sfv file does not appear in C:\

I used rapidcrc and created a sfv file in C:\
It does not appear when I go into the C:\ folder even though I have disabled hiding of all files, including operating system files.

However, it appears if I am in the process of creating another sfv via rapidcrc and I am at the 'save as' menu.

1) Why are you saving said SFV file into the root directory of your drive instaed of a place like Documents?

2) Are you using the latest vesion of RapidCrc?

1. I just happened to do so. No particular purpose or reason.
2. I should be. The latest version is 5 years old.

The file you are looking for is in C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\VirtualStore
Writing to the root or any system directory requires special privileges to write.

I see. But I'm puzzled as to why it appears when I'm in the "save as" menu if it is in another directory...

It would be VirtualStore, when using the Explorer APIs it pulls the files from there as it does the real location and merges the two.
