    There is, however, signs that point toward either, up and coming, platform specific or hidden system apps that may carry this content:
    I'm starting to think that the images are actually hidden in a dll file (or similar).

    With Brink's assistance (SevenForums - start at post #97) I've been able to open up the wim files for the various previews and I still can't find the new image or the previous one.

    Do you have more than one image?

    I only have the one there (in different sizes) and one in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\SystemData\S-1-5-18\ReadOnly\LockScreen_Z

    Seems the current ones go there...

    I had two. I believe, for the moment, only one is predetermined by MS. I copied some of my own over, and tried changing the names to cheat the system, without success.

    Thanks for that davehc.

    I cannot access SystemData (or it's sub-folders) though, regardless of how I configure the Permissions and Owner.

    I'll just use have to use brute force (i.e. fire up a Linux ISO).

    Additional
    Interesting.

    One folder was supposedly had about 8 jpg images in it.
    They weren't proper jpg images and couldn't be viewed (incorrect file headers).

    The other had several versions of the image that Edwin found (I swapped the Lock Screen image earlier today).

    Getting access in 'SystemData' is tricky, you have to change permissions for yourself then go in again and add yourself as a 'Principle'

    The other folder: take ownership of all of them, copy them and paste them somewhere then add .jpg extensions to them then rename them if you wish.

    Can you post a screenshot of that location?

    Another thing:
    On Build 9926 the package folder was called 'Microsoft.ContentDeliveryManager', now, in Build 10041, it's called 'Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager',
    also, I'm on Enterprise, if that has any bearing, I don't know.
    Or, maybe MS saw that users were accessing the items and distributing them on the web and so stopped caching them on the local system.

    Screenshots after taking ownership of folders and adding my profile as principal. btw I searched for every jpg in all of windows (using OSX to get around permissions) and these were all I could find.

    @ adamf :
    Do you have anything here:
    C:\Users\{your moniker}\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.ContentDeliveryManager_xxxxxx....\LocalState\Assets

    or
    C:\Users\{your moniker}\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_xxxxxx....\LocalState\Assets

    (the xxxxxx represents a long set of characters eg.: dc84637twxe333f......)

    they should look like this:

    No, Microsoft.ContentDeliveryManager_* doesn't exist for me on 10041 (clean install Pro). I go from Microsoft.CloudExperienceHost to Microsoft.Cortana
