I think you'll find that is a black clock.
This means that the file has been archived to tape and will take a very long time to access.
The black clock is sometimes seen even if your system is not equipped with Hierarchical Storage Management. When this happens, it's because some program (typically a setup program) didn't check error codes properly.
CopyFileAttributes(LPCTSTR pszSrc, LPTSTR pszDst)
The above code fragment fails to check for an error code from GetFileAttributes. It so happens that GetFileAttributes fails by returning the value 0xFFFFFFFF. If you fail to check this error code, you end up setting every possible attribute on the destination, including FILE_ATTRIBUTE_OFFLINE. FILE_ATTRIBUTE_OFFLINE is the flag that tells Explorer that the file has been archived to tape.
Standard overlay icons are:
A small arrow: Shortcut icons have a small arrow in the lower-left corner.
A small hand: Indicates a shared folder.
A small blue arrow (downward-pointing): Files to be written to CD.
A pair of blue swirling arrows: Offline folders.
A small black clock: The file has been archived.
