Windows created special files are imported, but should be ignored
1. Create a New Project
2. In the "Assets" folder, create a New Folder and change its icon ("Right Click" -> "Properties" -> "Customize" -> "Change Icon" -> Change to any icon)
3. Observe that Windows has created a special file "desktop.ini"
4. Focus the Editor window
5. Unity incorrectly imports the "desktop.ini" file and creates a "desktop.ini.meta" file
Expected Result: Windows created special files like "desktop.ini" should be ignored and should not be imported
Actual Result: Editor imports Windows created special files and creates a meta file
