It is known that in Windows mega uses the fileSystem API, which basically writes the file to a sandboxed section of your local file system:

AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\File System\

/Users/{username}/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/File System/

Replace {username} by the current user.
