It looks like it'll use a default db for the login you're accessing your server under. By default, it'll be master -- a horror ! Luckily, you have a User Instance=true, so it will actually create a dedicated master database for your instance. Not a good thing for a production site.

so it means that the data i stored was on the masterdb Database?

I guess so.. To check it one will need to connect to that instance and look into it's master: SQLCMD -E -S .\sqlexpress ; select * from sys.dm_os_child_instances; SQLCMD -E -S \\.\pipe\...\tsql\query ; use master; ...
