Folder showing 0 bytes and not allowing to rename


Recently I moved back from Linux to W7 and I copied all my data on my 1TB WD Ultra Passport. The problem is that I named there a folder " E: " and not it shows 0 bytes on properties and does not allow me to change its name. Do you have any Idea how could I fix it, please ?
