What files are you looking for? Application files? If so, what app(s) – Dave M Mar 15 '12 at 15:24

Windows doesn't put them anywhere. Mainly because Windows probably doesn't know which parts of an applications memory represent unsaved files. Windows probably doesn't expect unexpected crashes.

Specific applications may store none, some or all of your unsaved work in temporary files. It depends on the application.
