Evening Brink! I wonder if you can help.
I've got a VHD that mounts at startup
It's got my documents, pictures, and lots of portable apps.
It's also got some some shortcuts (for navigation), that accompany Quick Launch on the Start Menu
The problem is with shortcuts in Quick Launch etc that point to stuff on the mounted volume.
When it's good (like above) it's looks like the Quick Launch dir, as it should
Lately (since today, upgrading Sandboxie) it's got "Bad Cache Syndrome", re objects on the VHD that are pointed to from Quick Launch, ie
No biggy, just a quick Restart (kill and re-spawn) Explorer (courtest of a desktop context menu entry, thanks again to Brink!)
But this "fix" doesn't work anymore. It has no effect.
This is when I discovered your icon cache fix guide (and nearly posted there). A quick effective command I found that I believe achieves the same effect (without needing to restart) is
I wondered what you thought, whether it's worth trying to get the volume mounted before the shell loads or the user logs in, for example, or just whether adding a "automatic delayed operation" to clear the iconcache every time I login is the way to go.... or if I have to give up on my "shared area" being so handy between the native VHD's I boot into.
As always, many thanks Mr. Brink. You've helped lots of folks over the years... big thumbs up!
