Hi 2bn2b, welcome to the forums.

I've just had a look for you and the UserData folder is there on my rig under the same folder structure as you mentioned above.

Have you un-checked 'Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)' in Folder Options?

My Vista ones hidden too until I un-check that setting.

(Most people leave it checked, mainly for safety and also because it shows 2 .ini files on the desktop when unchecked)
