In the Appdata folder there are only default databases. Although my application is running fine but there is no .mdf file of my database name. I want to know where my data is being saved then?

The last time I used localDB in an entity framework app the .mdf files were being saved directly in the C:\Users\<username> directory.


From http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh510202.aspx

The system database files for the database are stored in the users' local AppData path which is normally hidden. For example C:\Users--user--\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Local DB\Instances\LocalDBApp1. User database files are stored where the user designates, typically somewhere in the C:\Users\Documents\ folder.
