What's the default SourceTree installation folder on Windows 10?

I'm running SourceTree on Windows 10, and it wants to install an update. I just noticed that it's currently installed under "Program Files (x86)", but it looks like this is a 64-bit application.

Should the software instead be installed under "Program Files" where 64-bit software is usually installed?

Should a new SourceTree install automatically default to the 64-bit folder?

I just installed SourceTree (64-bit for Windows) on two separate Windows 10 systems that have been updated to the latest version.

The default installation path seems to be:

C:\Users\***my user name***\AppData\Local\SourceTree

Why the down-vote? How is this not a legitimate question?

I am wondering if SourceTree was previously a 32-bit application and therefore installed to "Program Files (x86)", and later in-app upgrades just left it there even though it's now a 64-bit application, or whether it always installs to that folder even on brand new (clean) systems.
