You can start the notebook with the `--notebook-dir=your-favorite-path`  flag to start the notebook in this folder. ( /!\ it create it if it does not exist )
You can also set this in your IPython .profile.

I suppose the upload fails because of some writing rights in C:\Python27\Scripts, I don't remember if there is an issue about this on github.

Hope this help.
