You need to create one empty folder in the root of the partition and select that.  Just call it EV Vault Stores or something obvious like that.

if we go printshot1 to browse the drive it showing there is folder $RECYCLE.BIN.

Sorry, I misunderstood that you were selecting the top level and not an actual folder. 

Can you share what EV version?

Also, are these Mount Points?

Also, can you post a screen shot of one of the other directories, like Partition 6?

If this is a mount point check this TN:
