Default Cannot find TWRP backup data.ext4.win and system backup

I want to take my TWRP backup and move it off site, however I have explored /data/media/TWRP and i have pulled the backups from there but I seem to only have the boot, and recovery.emmc.win and all the MD5 hashes I have generated when i made the backup. But I don't seem to have the actually data and system backup (the most important). I know I have made the backup because it's still there in TWRP as a recovery option, and I have used it to revert from a broken 4.4 update to my old 4.3.

I checked data/media/TWRP which contains files none of which are my system and data backup
and I checked the data/media/0/TWRP and it contains nothing.

Any ideas where a huge 2.4 gig file could hide and where I could find it?

Thanks.

isn't /storage/emulated/0 a link towards sdcard/twrp? Eitherway the TWRP folder in there is empty.

Thanks for the suggestion though.

Found it, it was in the Data/Media/TWRP although hid itself once I did the Chmod for some reason. It showed back up again if I booted into TWRP recovery mode and retreived it from there using USB debugging.
