Windows 7: Can`t find iso file in Windows 7

18 Jul 2010   #21

Windows 10 Pro (x64)

To make sure nothing would interfere or taint the test I created a virtual machine not five minutes ago to test it out. I added one ".tmp" file to a location that would experience a junction loop C:\Users\Logic\AppData\Local. There was no loop. Whice brings me to the conclusion as before.

Screenshot posted as proof of test.

Can`t find iso file in Windows 7

Well its because you had the application save it to the root of the C: drive.
So in reality it is not in C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\VirtualStore

What you should have done is told the application to save it to your documents or desktop.
Thanks for your interest but it`s too technical for me, i`ll follow your comments above.

logicearth, I see your results but I honestly don't remember changing any permissions. Can you tell me what yours are set to for C:\Documents and Settings? Maybe that will give me a clue.

Till I learned that trick, many years ago now, I was always loosing things.

Then you can put it somewhere else, later, if you like.
I've had my browser set to save to "Desktop" like....Forever!
That way, I never loose anything.

Same thing when I use ImgBurn to make an ISO of a CD or DVD.....I always tell it to save the ISO to my desktop. It just makes life so much easier.:)

To keep my C drive from getting overloaded with misc. STUFF that I download, I've made an "Extra Stuff" folder on my D drive with a shortcut to it on my desktop.
When I'm done with something I've downloaded, like an install file or an ISO, I just drag and drop it on the 'Extra Stuff' icon on the desktop and VOILA, it's OFF of my C drive and in storage.
With just a little planning, keeping your C drive free of junk (files that you no longer need on your C drive) isn't all that hard.

To whom it may concern-I found the "iso" files. Hope it helps others. Windows 7>>Solution as follows>>> FOUND those hidden .iso files.>> go to computer/local disc C and then click on "compatibility files" at top on toolbar, in there are the HIDDEN .ISO files...Enjoy like i am. Cheers
