    Not sure if this is the correct area for such a post.

    I have a couple of different drives for different uses, my second drive is a shared drive, Homegroup Windows 7.

    I noticed a bunch of files which were not present when I added my media folders and I am wondering if anyone knows why these files may have appeared? They all have a 2007 date on them, but the drive was added at the begining of 2010? Edit within properties the date is April 2010?
