I am using aspnet_regiis.exe to Encrypt a connectionStrings on an ASP.Net application. The application in productions runs on a Web Farm I run the following command to create a RSA encryption key with the export option.

aspnet_regiis -pc "CustomKeys" -exp

Then I encrypt my connectionStrings using another command. Then I export the RSA encryption key

aspnet_regiis -px "CustomKeys" "C:\CustomKeys.xml" -pri

Then I import the key on the Server Farm Machine.

aspnet_regiis -pi "CustomKeys" "C:\CustomKeys.xml"

Then I am told to delete the file CustomeKeys.xml

My question is where is that private key stored after it is imported and deleted? I am using a Windows 10 machine. And will it still be exportable? Is it safe?
