I received an iOmega 1TB external hard drive for my birthday.

When I connected it to a USB port it was immediately recognized by my iMac and it seems to be pre-formated for the Mac.

There is a Folder called 'SystemVolumeInformation' and it contains a zero bit file named 'MountPointManagarRemoteDatabase'. The info says that it is a Unix executable file.

What is it? Do I need this file or should I get rid of it by reformatting my drive?

Thanks in advance for any reply.
