However, it is important to note that the recorded file is not saved to the same folder as the Applian Replay Media Capture. Here are the steps to locate the recorded file:

 Open program > Click SETTINGS > TOOLS (toolbar at the top) > SETUP STORAGE FOLDER

When I do that on my computer, what get is a popup which showed the cascading folders and at the top of the popup it showed

C:\Users\BlogStar\Videos\RVC Recordings

So to get the recorded file, open Windows Explorer and find the folder RVC Recordings folder.
