2 EA records processed

After running chkdsk on a volume, it is showing 2 EA records processed.  I checked dos book and it is not showing anything about EA records processed.

Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Thank you for your help

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."
