Is it a virus?

HI,
I have a laptop with windows 7 .I have a strange problem .When I copy a folder from for example drive 'c' and paste it to another folder it makes a new folder in it and the name of it is 'local file' and It then copy the whole drive files and folders in that folder so I have a local file folder with a copy of the drive information.
What 's that ?Is it a virus or windows seven do that?
I'm sorry for my bad English.
Thanks

I have no idea what that is, never seen it before, but if you're worried about viruses there are solutions:

Microsoft Security Essentials
OR
Avast Free Edition

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
SuperAntiSpyware

Windows thinks C: drive is a network drive?

Can you post a screenshot of the Disk management window?
