Default [Q] Nandroid backup location

I'm trying to do a full backup of an N5 but I can't find the nandroid backups anywhere. I can see them from Clockworkmod (though it's called '1970-01-' for some reason) but I've used es file explorer to look in /SDCARD/ClockWorkMod/ and the folder is empty not even a backup folder. I've tried doing a system search for the '1970-01-' I mentioned it's named at as in CWM but no luck.

I want the file so I can upload it to my dropbox along with other backups. I've got it set up as I want it with CM11-m1 and I want a backup of it now on the cloud. How do I find where the backup is saved?

Cwm hasn't bothered updating source code to take account of the fact that /sdcard is now /data/media/0 instead of /data/media on FUSE devices...

So go to /data/media to find your backups
