Hi,

Today when i booted up my PC i noticed that the icon for my external HDD had change and i have no idea what it means of if it can be changed back? The image attached is what the icon was before (top) and what it is now (bottom).

Sorry if this is posted in the incorrect area, i couldn't find any topic that matched my problem.

Any help in this matter is greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks
