Folder Backgrounds

I have a custom window 7 theme that is suppose to apply the folder background along with everything else, and i used the windows theme patcher program to apply the theme to my computer, everything works besides that the folder background doesn't appear. I know there are programs out there that allows you to change the folder background manually using pictures that you saved, but i want to use the custom theme's folder background and I am wondering if there are any ways to do that

Hi zerox535

Can you post a link to the theme so we can have a look at it. Also post a screen shot of exactly what you mean by folder background.

Does the theme come with an installer or have you had to manually replace the system files.
