The folder 'Veritas' is appearing within my Windows Explorer

Hello,
Something very strange is happening...

We have some files stored on a file server network share.  Today I noticed that some new folders, with the name 'Veritas', are appearing within my folder structure on that file server.  Some of the data folders that we are storing on the file server, are appearing under these new 'Veritas' folders.
Multiple 'Veritas' folders are appearing throughout the Windows Explorer folder struture on this file server.

The only thing I could think of was a virus, or maybe they are temporary folders that the Veritas BackupEXEX program uses (but I doubt it).

Thanks.

if you tell BE to create backuptodisk media, it'll create veritas folders on that media. Probably someone tried something in backupexec?
