It stands for Input Output Control Service. It is a driver used for flash devices such as a USB drive. Country Boy
The loctlSvc.exe processes are associated with auto detection of Flash drives (to start and stop the tray utility). They have no other function associated with data transfer.

For your USB flash driver mmkay
its useless in winxp Nero did it again, putting an exe that will eventually cause problems. It will eventually try to become the default usb device driver for all usb related processes in win7 home basic, causing system slowdowns nd freezes in certain apps. Like Norton Backup utlities using external drives larger than 500gb. The rechanges are seen by your system as part of the backup process.  See also: Link William
