Hmm, never noticed that before. Well if you look at the icons, one of them is an empty folder icon, and the other is a 'folder with files in it' icon. I think it's just different .ico files.

Compare these. Both are not empty:

The icon on the left is the 'My Documents' icon. It's a separate .ico file than the one on the right, which is the 'folder with files in it' icon. I don't know how Windows handles that icon, as I don't see it in imageres.dll.

EDIT: Also, I'm not sure how Windows handles the folder content previews either (e.g. how the icon on the right has the Microsoft Security Essentials icon in its preview).
