    What is this double blue arrow icon overlay?

    This is a duplicate of Two blue arrows at top right of icons.

    I'm in the process of recovering from a major data-loss disaster. After restoring files from my external hard drive, many of the folders and files have a new (to me) icon overlay on them. The icons appear in Windows Explorer and in the file/folder property dialogs.

    The icon overlay shows two blue arrows facing each other.

    What do these icon overlays mean?

    I am running Windows 10 Pro (64-bit).
