Not sure if this a window's disc symbol or solidworks disc symbol
I have never seen it in SolidWorks. Must be Windows.
To me, it appears similar to an optical (CD/DVD) disk burning software's indication of files waiting to be burned to disk. Perhaps NTI Backup Now, Roxio Creator, or Sonic MyDVD Studio Deluxe Suite is causing that, depending on what is likely pre-installed with your PC.
It is not a Solidworks associated icon.
Where do you see them; in folder OR dvd/dvd drive?
folder. doesn't look like I have any burning software on this computer...mmmmm
Well, then is glitch with Windows messing up SW icons. Restarting system should fix that.
