where are my purchased ebooks?

A strange/stupid question.

I'm backing up data and can't seem to find the sony connect ebooks I purchased.

Sony Connect doesn't tell you where your purchased ebooks reside.

I created my own sony directory, but can't find the path to my ebooks.

(I'm supposed to search for .lrx for encrypted files, right?)

Not a stupid question; took me several minutes to find it (and I already knew where it was).

well, that was the first place I looked
but I actually moved it into another directory.

I see what the problem is. lrx files don't have human-readable names. How sucky is that?

Thanks.

In that case do a search for *.lrx.

As a side note -- re-naming those LRX files has absolutely no effect on their function that I can determine.

The file location is shown in "book info" blurb which is displayed when you click the "i" button show on top right of an opened book.
