Do I have a problem and if so what is it?

Hello to all,
I just deleted the a partition and some unallocated space on a hard drive. I then formatted it the long way. As I look at it in the Computer view, the only thing that was installed was the $Recycle.bin. It was and labeled in blue. I began to copy files and make folders, and they all display in blue. Disk Manager states that it is a Healthy Primary Partion. Do I have a problem. My other drive and this one prior to the reformatting displayed the lettering in black.
What did I do wrong? Can anyone PLEASE help me fix it. Thanks

Hi -- Could you do two things to help us. Fill in your System Specs in the lower left hand corner of you last post and post a screen shot from your Control Panel of the Disk Management that shows how it is partitioned. Thanks,

Hello to All,
Thank you for your time and assistance. Below is the current, haven't rebooted since the formatting and giving it its drive letter of E: which is was originally. I also changed the name from IIRC New Volume to MB2 which was it's original name.

Do I have a problem and if so what is it?-capture.png


Now may not be the time, but I also need help in that the System Volume is missing as is the Windows created Folder with its group of System Images. I bulk copied over from the drive that was formatted to my C: MB1 drive into one folder. Finally does anyone recognize a folder called _SYNCAPP???

Gentlemen,
This was a full format. It asked me to pick the drive letter. After it was created I went and did a rename back to the original.
