Mystery Hard Drive

Hello folks,

I'm running Vista Business v.6.0

I did a search for any music I had on the hard drive after transferring most of it a long time ago to my laptop.

I found 40gb of music in a folder (J:/) that doesn't exist anywhere. I clicked on a file and clicked 'open file location' but got a very long message saying

J:/King Khan and the Shrines/What is refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted or that you are connected to the internet or check your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located the information might have been moved to a different location

I cannot find a J drive anywhere and want to get rid of anything that might be lurking in it.

Any advice?

Thanks in advance

OK it must be in Disc Management but may have another letter so look for a disc partition about the size of the missing drive
If you find it you can change the drive letter or resize the c: drive to use the space

Could it have been on an external drive that you disconnected before it had finished reading
Did you use safely remove hardware?
