I've moved the location on my PC, but I believe the default storage was in "C:/users/Public/Public Recorded TV"

In Windows Media Center, go to Tasks.

Then follow Settings -> TV -> Recorder -> Recorder storage

This will allow you to relocate the "Recorded TV" folder to whatever drive or location you care to put it on.

But the folder will be named "Recorded TV" in the root of the drive you put it on.
