Where does Quickbooks store its data?

I was given a HD that has gone bad and I need to rescue the data saved by Quickbooks. Where does Quickbooks save data by default?

"From here:

Looks like:

C:\Program Files\Intuit\QuickBooks Pro\[your company data file]"

"The default is usually along these lines:

C:\Program Files\Intuit\QuickBooks\Components

but it would be easier to run a DIR search (or find on Linux) over the hard drive to see where most of the .qbw files are:

DIR /S *.qbw"
