Folders Pictures (Folder Icon)

Hi everyone..
I know that when I customize a folder icon, a desktop.ini file will be created inside that folder, but if I assign a picture of that folder in (folder pictures panel) where are these data saved?

Because when I put this folder in another PC the picture is missing, and goes to default again.


Thanks

what i would do is ,with the image you want to show on the folder ,if you rename it "folder " it will show the image as you want when you move the folder. providing it is inside the folder.
