probably the default Icons for showing pages that
don't have an index file (such as default.html, index.html, etc).

NOw, if you have the "don't show directories that don't have
such file" option on it is a completely unnecessary option.

Asunto: [thelist] IIS file: Icon_: wtf is it?

So I'm moving this old site from Mac WebSTAR to NT IIS.  And I'm finding 
that the site is packed with more crap than my mom's attic.

I'm trying to clear out some of the dusty cobwebs.  The IIS web directory 
is mapped so that I can get to it on the network, without FTP.  But I'm 
trying to trash these old directories, and several of them contain these 
files (which I didn't see on the Mac server, only on the IIS server) called 
"Icon_".  They are represented with the generic windows icon, but grayed

According to my Windows machine, the "Icon_"  files cannot be deleted.

What are they, why are they there, and what do I do about it?
