Windows 7: Manual Change of Drive Icons?

Manual Change of Drive Icons?

I can gather from the Icon packs I've downloaded from Mr. Grim that certain dll's need to be edited, probably with Res hacker. Can some one confirm that if I wanna be able to use my own icons, I just need to run restorator on those dlls and change the icons that Mr.Grim changes? If this is the case, is there a tutorial which lists the icons in those dll's?

Hello Ragzarok,

If you just wanted to changed the drive icon, then the tutorial below for Vista will work as well in Windows 7 if you wanted to use this method instead of modifying .dll files.
