hello guys will im currently not rooted for the warranty but there is one thing that bothers me
about the htcdev.com

can my warranty (company, provider, or whatever they called)
check in anyway that i had unlocked the bootloader before
and is the unlcok.bin code linked with my device only (the unlock code when proceeding in unlocking)

dont know why this is coming into my mind

and another question where does the nandroid backup located in twrp and CWM
in future when i reroot the device i want to do a nandroid backup for it

If your bootloader says unlocked or relocked they will know you have unlocked the bootloader. Also "tampered" flag must not shown in the bootloader. Its possible to remove the tampered flag and set the bootloader back to locked (not re-locked) with S-OFF. So if you can achieve s-off there is nothing to worry about.

in theory yes, your unlock_code.bin is generated from your phone unlock_token, but never heard of someone who wasn't able to claim warranty because he have unlocked bootloader (with bootloader locked and no tampered flag ---> s-off required)
In some rare cases, HTC doesnt care about unlocked bootloader if its 100% sure the issue wasn't caused by the bootloader being unlocked. It depends which service center. Always better to send the phone Locked + no tampered flag.

TWRP backup are stored at
/sdcard/TWRP/BACKUPS/YOUR_PHONE_SERIAL_NUMBER/DATE_OF_BACKUP/

or if you prefer:

/data/media/0/TWRP/BACKUPS/YOUR_PHONE_SERIAL_NUMBER/DATE_OF_BACKUP/

not sure about cwm, probably something similar.
