Sorry, I did some checking and that o/p location is for the render o/p. 
My pov files are saved in the same location that the blend file is saved in.
I do have some files in %appdata%\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.79\preview

But they are associated with a file that had packed textures. I don't 
know what happened there.
