Where is documents and settings?

On Windows 7, I can see a folder called users. It seems to be used as "user documents and settings" for previous Windows version. But can't find some folders such as "application data". By searching a lot on internet, they said there is appdata which point to "application data". but in my users folder, I can't find it.

You have to have "show hidden files" clicked in explorer and you will see it in your directory.

Look for AppData which is hidden. You will need to allow viewing of hidden files in folder options.
