After the export, the destination folder should contain the diagram images in PNG format. The filenames for the images are based on the full element path name for each of the diagrams (which includes the system and parent elements as prefix) to distinguish between diagrams with the same name in different folders. Each page of the diagram is exported to a different image. A "_n" suffix is appended to each filename where n is the page number starting at 1 to distinguish between the various pages of a diagram.
