Where does Scrivener 3 for Windows save projects?

I want to be sure that my daily backup is including my scrivener projects. Where does Scrivener 3 for Windows save projects?

Go file>options and checkup backup panel and will show a button show backup folder and will see location of saves

From the options you can see where the backups go :

And as for the project itself:

When creating a new project (where the backups location is per a general option - so shared accross all projects), you get to decide where. (Each project has its unique location.)

The best approach would be to set Scrivener for automatic backups (preferably zipped and timestamped), and point to Scrivener’s backup folder for your daily backup.
No need to include the project itself in your “daily backup”.
