Data file location and access

I cannot find the specific location of the data files for my MySQL database. I need this to access them from a Syware Android database on my phone.

Using the Command Line Client, I entered:

SHOW VARIABLES WHERE Variable_name = 'datadir';

and found that datadir was in:

C:\ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.7\Data\

I cannot find this directory. Even if ProgramData means 'Program Files', there is no data directory in the MySQL Server 5.7 directory. I have looked in all the other data and bin and library directories under MySQL and cannot find the data files. I am running Windows 8.1 Pro. Thanks.
