Unsandbox app and file bundles

I have files that I need access to. Don’t really care where they are, just as long as I can read (some) and read-write (some) them. However, after following the cryptic directions it says all is well and it says the files are located where asked to have them. However, when I try to access them, they aren’t there, or at least I can’t open them. I also can’t find them in the directory. Where do they go? For example, if I asked them to be put in the special directory, does it create that directory, but then delete it when the app isn’t running?
I am running unsandboxed. I don’t know if that makes a difference.

Nevermind. I figured it out.
