Where is the Windows 8 lockscreen wallpaper Stored?

HI all,

 

on the first Windows 8 Preview I created a Lock screen Wallpaper. Now on every machine i'm using Windows 8 it uses that cool Lock Screen Wallpaper. But only on my account. I want to use it for another account, but I cant find it anywhere locally.

 

On every (new) machine I logon with my MS Account, that cool Lock Screen Wallpaper appears, so it must be stored somewhere?

Anyone knows where to find or how I can retrieve my current Windows 8 Lock Screen Wallpaper so i can use it on other accounts?

 

Thanks in advance!

The files are stored in C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows

there you will find folders called LockScreen_A, LockScreen_B, etc. Each folder contains one of the lock screen images.
