Desktop Services Store, these .DS_Store files are generated by Apple's OS X operating system to store meta data on a folder's display attributes such as the folder's background image, file listing view preferences etc.

These .DS_Store files are recognized by the OS X operating system as system files so are hidden to OS X by default. However, these .DS_Store files are still generated when accessing remote folders (for example, on a Windows server) so will be visible to Windows users as they are not recognized as system files on the Windows operating system.
