Where is export to XML file stored

I am exporting spaces from one instance of confluence and restoring in another.  

When I export it creates a zip file that I then download.  Where is this file stored?  I think I need to clean these up after I have moved the space.

It's under <confluence home>/export

Well worth checking what you have in there regularly, to avoid disk space issues.

Hi Jenifer,

Actually, after you finish the export you will be presented with a "here" to download the file, which should download to your computer.

The file will only be located in the export if it's a support zip.

As William commented, in Windows the XML export will be downloaded directly in the Downloads folder.
