    Why does Win backup include folders from another drive?

    I run a Windows backup on my system C drive on a schedule. Watching the details this morning, I noticed it also backs up Music folders, but not their files, from another phsycial hard drive, D drive (labeled "Video-Music-Books"). Why would Win's backup include folders from another drive? And to understand better, why only the folders and not the files? Win 8x64 Pro. Thanks,
