Where does "backup & restore" store the backup on sd card?

I use the "backup & restore" app to backup my data to sd card. 

I would like to know where exactly the backup is, so I can back it up to somewhere else, for example Dropbox. 

I looked and looked in the internal storage and external sd card. However I didn't find it. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

If I'm not mistaken, you should be able to find the backup via Android\data\SonyBnR.

Hi,

You will not find the folder with default explorer "File Commander" or other like "ES Explorer"

Instead you can find the folder by browsing the sd card from windows

The folder is called "semc-fullbackup" ...something like that
