If you set your Folder Options to display Hidden Files you will see the Hibernation file in the Root of the C Drive once you've activated Hibernation in Power Options.

Look for a file called hiberfil

Thanks for the reply David. I found the file, but could not open as a protected file. What I was looking for was the stored files so I could delete them.

If you are referring to this hibernate file it will disappear if you turn off Hibernation feature from Power Options.

This being a system file cannot be deleted but since it's only created when the feature is turned on there is no need to worry about the file.

If you are referring to other storage file post back.
