C:\ProgramData is normally configured as a hidden folder in Windows, and is not visible by default in Windows Explorer. Is that where you were expecting to see it?

Despite the folder being hidden, you can still navigate there by explicitly typing "C:\ProgramData" in the address bar of Windows Explorer.

Thank you so much.
I know you are talking about. But my Windows Server 2008 wasn't R2. It didn't have ProgramData with hidden. It must be somewhere in Documents and Setting.

Maybe try checking the value of your %PROGRAMDATA% environment variable: type "%PROGRAMDATA%" into the address bar of Windows Explorer.
