Not all setups have their user directories in the data/user/files format, to 
get the data location while taking those setups into account you'll want to 

$userManager = \OC::$server->getUserManager();
$path = $userManager->get($user)->getHome() . '/files/....';

Also take into account that not all files are stored locally
