Format of NoMachine files from v. 7 onwards

NoMachine v. 7 introduces a new format of files which distinguishes between their usage:

File Format Scope
.nxs launch client connections
.nxw launch web connections by client
.nxr NoMachine video recording (readable by NoMachine client and multimedia players)
.nxv NoMachine video recording, legacy (readable only by NoMachine client)

 These files are all placed by default in the 'NoMachine directory' in the user's 'Documents' directory:

/Users/USERNAME/Documents/NoMachine on macOS
%USERPROFILE%\Documents\NoMachine on Windows
/home/USERNAME/Documents/NoMachine on Linux

or in the directory specified in the client UI.
