That's a surprise. Normally only volumes that contain bootable systems
are represented by those icons. It takes some time for the search for
startup volumes to complete as indicated by the 'watch" cursor. When
the cursor reverts to an arrow, one of the icons can be selected by
clicking on it and the startup process initiated by clicking on the
right point arrow. Are you sure the search had completed?
It means that the files in question have been allocated the same disk
sector or sectors. There is no way to repair the affected files since,
taken in pairs, at least one of them will have incorrect data recorded
in the shared sector(s). The easiest thing to do is to copy the files,
delete the originals, and inspect the copies for damage.
