Windows 7: No custom Hard drive icons

21 Nov 2010   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32-bit
No custom Hard drive icons

I just noticed today that on my external harddrive my WD Icon no longer shows up. I haven't changed the file and I have even made one for a different harddrive and that doesn't show up either.

Just the default drive icon

Any ideas?

Custom folder icons disappear when drive letter changes
Hi all, I don't think this is exactly related to customization, but rather maybe the way Win7 handles file paths. Anyway, here's my problem: I have an external HD with many folders with custom icons. On my PC the drive letter which is always assigned is G. Now, when I use it on a friend's PC,...
