Avin,

I noticed that you have the name of the first folder in the path is "can be deleted". Are the icons still located in this location? If not, then it will not work.

Avin,

Could you upload the icons in a ZIP file? I'll give them a test on my system to see what may be wrong.

Avin,

The first thing I noticed is that the icons are only 48x48 pixels in size. This is why they are not displaying. They might display with a small icon view. You need to have these type of 256x256 pixel icons instead for it to display completely.

Hello Aerrow, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could turn off thumbnail previews to only have your custom folder icon display.
