Folder name of location protected-files-compressing apps like WindZIp/7z save to

We have a user that password-protect a lots of his documents.  He uses WinRar v3.61 (and latest WinRar) , WinZip v9 (and the latest) also uses the latest 7z,  In a meeting a colleague mention that the problem with these apps, though all uses AES-256 (except the old version of WinRar),  when unzipping the files, all the apps create an unprotected version of the contents on another area of the computer.  What is the exact location of these folders?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

AFAICT during unzipping in the target directory a temporary file is created which is later renamed to the target name (this is to protect an existing from a file to be extracted,  and the extraction fails).
The only otherplaces are: in process memory in buffers, in the filesystems buffers in kernel memory. (and if eavesdropping on system calls, the write() arguments to a file.
