What is this folder. If it is a system folder it does not belong into Music. Must have gotten into there by accident.

It's Windows the OS. I added a test folder to C: Windows and it shows up in Windows libraries music. Not a shortcut either.

You have to remove the SSD(C) from there.

Well that is the first time of seen such a thing. I do wonder how such a thing can happen.

I do believe it can be drag/drop back into the left column from Windows Explorer.

Yeah it happens to those drag and drop experts. You have to be extremely careful with drag and drop, especially in List and Details view.
