The file location is by default here: C:\ProgramData\SolidWorks\SOLIDWORKS 20XX\design library\forming tools
So check the above the path in your system (XX denotes SW version). Also you can search in your installation drive for the files.
And please check if the folder is set to "Forming Tools Folder" with right click on the folder in the SWX Task Pane. That's necessary because the content has the file ending .SLDPRT
