Welcome eddiecraig.
Your problem sounds very odd.
Give us the basics first; what OS you are using etc (I'm assuming some flavour of Windows).
Also:
1) How do you access these drives in which the new folder appears? E.g. through My Computer? Through Explorer? Some other way?
2) You say it comes back again after you delete it. When does it come back? Next time you access the folder? After a reboot? As you watch?
Try to be specific in your answers and we'll do our best to get to the bottom of it for you

Smurf, dalight

Its not in all cages we provide details, in some cases u can conclude some incidents from scanty symptoms.

Actually its a worm that replicates the parent folder in the child folder . If u check the property of the folder u will find out that it is not actually a folder but an application which is similar to the "mount point" principle prepared either in a shell script or batch file.

the carribean queen oh! sorry king has sovled your problem.
thanks

i think it's an old worm, when my pc was infected with this i was seraching for a file with the "new folder"s size on the pc startup, then i was removing all of them, but now i think all AVs can detect this.
