McAfee File and Removable Media Protection - Unprotected Files Folder

I was given a hard drive that was said to have 930+ GB of files on it. Once opened with FRP and the associated password, the viewable files after being unencrypted only totaled to several GBs.

There was an Unprotected Files Folder with little to no contents, but viewing the properties of the folder was showing that it was close to 900GB in size. Are there actually hidden files stored here? What is the purpose of the Unprotected Files Folder and why is it showing such a huge when we can't see anything in it?
