%SystemDrive% folder appeared on my desktop

P: 1
I was cleaning up an external storage media and a folder called: %SystemDrive% appeared on my desktop. When I click on it, it contains a folder called:
ProgramData, with these folders as follows:
-Microsoft
--Windows
---Cashes
When I click on Cashes I get a list of data base files. Can I put this folder back where it belongs? It is a hidden folder inside windows(C). Actually, the ProgramData folder is what is inside windows(C). I think %SystemDrive% was created to store the folders and data base files. Any idea of how to put it back or is it safe to remove it? Any help would be really appreciated.

If you do not know how to fix this, then I humbly suggest that you do a full backup of your computer before attempting to fix it. Do not even take it to a "computer expert" until you do a full backup.

EASEUS Todo Backup 1.1 works for 32 bit systems.
Later versions are available.

Do not wait.

Do the backup.
