Hello jleafe, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It looks like you have hidden it by mistake. If your "My Music" folder is still at the default C:\Users\(user-name)\My Music location, then you could open a elevated command prompt and run the command below to fix this.

attrib +r -s -h %USERPROFILE%\Music /S /D

Hope this helps,
Shawn
