    I keep getting this "Music" folder showing up on my desktop. I used to have a folder named that but then about two years ago I transferred my music to an iTunes folder, but "Music" keeps randomly showing up no matter how many times I delete it. It also shows up randomly with no apparent trigger. Sometimes it'll be gone for a few days and then just show up again. Most of the time it happens when I turn on my external hardrive... but sometimes it happens without the hardrive being turned on. Anyone have any thoughts about this ghost folder?

    Is there actually anything in it?
    Do you have any torrents running?
