Where do files appear in Windows VM when I move them from another VM?

Hey, I installed Qubes windows tools to move files between VMs, but when I move/copy file to Windows VM I can’t find it. I was looking for QubesIncoming folder but I can’t. Where I should look for my files?

To enable file copy operations to a Windows VM, the default_user property of this VM should be set to the <username> that you use to login to the Windows VM. This can be done via the following command on a dom0 terminal: *(where <VMname> is the name of your Windows VM).

Otherwise, files copied to this VM are stored in the folder C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\Documents\QubesIncoming\<source_VM>.

See Qubes Windows Tools item 10.
