This is a newbie, very basic question. I have installed sagemath on a windows computer using ubuntu. I want to load a file but I don't know where sage/ubuntu is looking for that file. So I get an error (below). How do I type the path so my file is found? Or maybe I can just save the somewhere different that makes things easy?

sage: load('C:\Documents\SAGE\example.sage')
<input>:1: DeprecationWarning: invalid escape sequence '\D'
<>:1: DeprecationWarning: invalid escape sequence '\D'
<ipython-input-20-514939547c9b>:1: DeprecationWarning: invalid escape sequence '\D'

    172     if sage.repl.load.is_loadable_filename(filename):
--> 173         sage.repl.load.load(filename, globals())
    174         return

/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/sage/repl/ in load(filename, globals, attach)
    242             break
    243     else:
--> 244         raise IOError('did not find file %r to load or attach' % filename)
    246     ext = os.path.splitext(fpath)[1].lower()

OSError: did not find file 'C:\\Documents\\SAGE\\example.sage' to load or attach

If anyone has this problem in the future... Sage starts looking in the Ubuntu folder (which now seems obvious), however I was not able to save there. I saved my file in Ubuntu\home\mysageusername\mysageFiles

So I type load('/home/mysageusername/mysageFiles/example.sage') and the sage code in example.sage output to command line.
