My answer is stolen from Question 41417:

The folder is for files that has been removed from the disk, or changed their name or location.

If they has been renamed on the drive, you need to rescan your collection.

I recommend that you do the following:

* Edit -> Preferences
* Click the "Music"-tab
* Check the "Watch my library for new files"-checkbox

It should now find the files if they are still somewhere within the library location.

I hope this helps :)
