Default any idea what these strange files are??

Ever since I re-installed Pro Tools after a reformat a while back, I have a couple of strange folders and I don't know what they are.
Every time I open ProTools and click on open session, the "Choose session" window opens. In that window, there is a folder called "PT Files" (normal) and another folder marked "Restore" (i think this used to say "ProTools" before the re-install. I'm curious because the folder is kinda light-shaded, like it's not a full folder.
When I open it, inside there are two files...
one that looks like a driver/dll file that's named "desktop" and another named "SRDISKID.DAT".
I don't dare click on them for fear that something weird might happen.
If anyone knows, what are these? Can I move them? Should I move them?
They seem like they should be in a registry somewhere, but that's where my computer knowledge ends.
Everything is working beautifully on my system, but I'm being a bit anal. The simple answer is, of course, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it", I know, but I just did a massive junk-file clean-up and regained 3 gigs on my drive, and I wanted to figure this nonsense out at the same time.
