Smile CWM Backup Folder help :)

Okay so first i must say hi! I'm new to the Nexus 4 (coming from a GT-I9001) and i must say this phone is excellent! But let me get to the point.
Due to the small amount of storage on the phone I'm looking at moving my Nandroid Backup onto my PC, Sadly i cannot access the folder they are saved in.

I Read somewhere that 4.2 uses a sort of secure folder for Nandroid backups? and that its only accessible from ADB? If so, please teach me on how to move these onto my PC. Because I'm sure alot of us newbies to this phone have no idea how to do this. (Or atleast I don't! :P)

Thanks for Reading!

TL;DR,
Cant see ClockWorkMod Backup folder, How do I get backups onto PC?

Cwm backups are found in /data/media/clockworkmod/backups, you can pull the data using "adb pull /data/media/clockworkmod/backups"
Captivate + cm7
HP Touchpad + cm9
SGS2 + cm9
Galaxy Nexus + CNA
LG Nexus 4 + AOKP

Cant find anything there... Very strange... I'm using CWM 6 with Touch, I Backed up and i can confirm the backup DOES work, and is detectable by CWM.

I've checked in both /data (nothing in here?) and /sdcard/emulated/legacy/data
There does appear to now be a CWM folder on the internal storage, but in there is only .nomedia and .settings

Any ideas? Or am i looking in the wrong folders? Thanks for the help!

You are looking in the root directory and not in the sdcard right?

Under /data in the root there is no files... is that bad? :/ I'm using Ol File Mananger. Maybe that's why?

Thank you for the helpful hint! peachpuff!

Tested on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus rooted stock rom 4.2.1 JOP40D. Browsing won't show the files, but using ADB can pull the data to the computer.
No "s" for the backup folder.

Cwm backups are found in /data/media/clockworkmod/backup, you can pull the data using

"adb pull /data/media/clockworkmod/backup"

Default In 4.2...........

The way to go in 4.2 is /mnt/shell/emulated/clockworkmod/backup

Still don't think your in the root directory, just in the root directory of the sdcard.

Your file manager is using root permissions? Maybe you need root to see those folders...
