Default [QUEST] CWM backup from Nexus 4 to System

Hello guys ,

How do i copy the backup created using CWM to my system(laptop) ?
As i understand the latest CWM backups are stored in locations which cannot be accessed by users . Is there any other way it can be achieved ?

Also please do provide the restore procedure for the same.

On nexus 4 running stock kitkat.
CWM version :

Any help would be greatly appreciated .

they can be acesses by users, at /data/media/clockworkmod or /sdcard/clockworkmod, u can use root explorer or adb to get them.

Just plug your phone to your system(laptop) and look for the biggest by size folder. That should be your cwm backup. Also mind the name. I am not talking about /Android!!! Just copy it somewhere the regular way and then delete it. The restore is simple but you have to have it back on the same place in the phone's memory. The restore process is carried out from the recovery. GL.
