Can`t find iso file in Windows 7

I create an iso image file and backup, then i can`t find the iso file C:\(name of movie).iso in Windows 7 when i want to burn. In Windows XP it`s quite easy to find it-My computer>right click system C>open. Do you know why this is 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.

Thank You for your prompt reply. So save it to a new folder in my documents would be the best? Desktop is not a folder?:)

You could also just move it from c:\ to C:\Users\[username]\Desktop.

Open Windows Explorer, right click on the .iso file (or files) and select Cut.
Navigate to C:\Users\[username]\Desktop then right click and select Paste.

[username] is what we generally use to tell you that that is where your user name goes. For example my desktop is located at c:\Users\Petey\Desktop. Just open explorer, go to c:, then users, then select your user name, then select the Desktop folder.

If interested, open a Command Prompt and enter set.

That will give you a list of all Environment Variables. To use any of them, take the name on the left side of the = and put it in % signs, like

USERPROFILE=C:\Users\[username]

%USERPROFILE%

Click on Start then enter %USERPROFILE% and press Enter. That will open Windows Explorer in the C:\Users\[username] folder.

APPDATA=C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming

%APPDATA%

Try typing iso into the search box on the bottom of the Start Menu or in Computer

I love saving everything to my desktop.... of course it's a folder (somewhere) but it's also right there in your face. Anything you save to "Desktop" will never get lost.
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.

Cheers!
