Corazon, they are hardlinks. The reason SFC can restore files delete by using WinSxS because when you delete a hardlink the file is never truely deleted until every single hardlink to the file is deleted.

Attached is a ZIP files containing a large text file that list all the hardlinks within WinSxS from my system.
