Clicking on expand won't hurt a thing. It has the same effect as clicking on the triangle to the left of each device/drive/folder. If there are subfolders below the drive or folder then they will become visible.

Where in Windows 7 are you trying to do this?
Your description is unfortunately not so clear. Can you use Windows 7 snipping tool to make an image that you can post in your thread?

Are you in Explorer or in Control Panel-->Administrative tools-->Computer management?

 

Expand won't hurt anything.

It is when you format, shrink, extend, convert or partition that things will begin to become abnormal. Smiley Wink
