    Apparently these are NTFS "Extended Attribute" records and are normal.
    They were originally for compatibility with OS/2's HPFS filesystem but from hunting around online, it appears they are now "mostly used for storing user-provided meta data visible in the Windows Shell Explorer" - "Extended file attributes are the data displayed under the summary tab of a file properties dialog box, such items such as Author, Subject, Source, and so on."
