When checked, that means that this file is a proof. Normally this is triggered automatically when you are in soft proofing mode and make a change in Develop; it asks you whether you want to make a Virtual Copy, and that VC is your proof copy.
A proof copy is just like any other VC, except that the output profile is stored with it so that the Print module can set it properly.
