Default Where to find nandroid backup

I just unlocked and rooted my N7 and installed Clockword Mod Recovery. I made a nandroid backup as soon as everything was flashed, but I can't find where that backup is saved. Does anyone know where it goes by default?

it creates a 'clockworkmod' folder. and if you have the latest CWM installed, there would be a 'backups' and 'blobs' subfolders that are both required for nandroids.

That is the folder that I am looking for. I know on my phone I can find that in the root folder (of the SD card), but with the N7 there are four different root folders (presumably because of the multiple users) and I can't find the clockwork mod stuff in any of them.

i'm not using 4.2 yet because of this weird stuff going on.

are you on the latest CWM? the latest version supports 4.2 and its multi-users.

but i did read something about that the backups are in the /0/clockworkmod folder.

If you're on 4.2.x with multiple users, it will be under the main user /media/data/0. Make sure you are on CWM 6.0.1.9 which is the first version that is 4.2 compatible. Previous versions weren't ready for 4.2 yet.

And that's the main reason I'm still on 4.1.2 I hate that multi-user, and that there is no option to disable it during installation/upgrade.
