    Sorry NicksonBlue,

    I cannot make a reg file, since it will be different for everyone based on the icon they choose.

    Re: Drive Icon Change

    Shawn,
    I am having similar problem. After installing Vista updates my E: drive icon started showing as generic Windows folder icon (see attached picture). System restore did not help, changing disk icon for drive E: (like described in this thread) did not help, cleaning icon cache did not help either.
    Do you have any ideas what it can be caused by and how to fix it?
    Best,
    Darius

    Hi Darius,

    Is the E: Drive a separate partition or an attached drive.

    You might see if running a sfc /scannow command to see if can find and fix the problem for you.

    Shawn,
    I forgot to add that I had tried sfc /scannow, and it had not work either.
    E: is a logical drive on extended partition of the hard drive. C: is a promary, other two are logical drives.

    Darius,

    You might try changing the drive letter then changing it back to see if it can trigger a reset to show the drive icon again.

    scr621,
    I believe you answered to Shawn's post which was addressed to me.
    I am happy you fixed the problem.
    I would be even more happy if you told me how. I am dealing with the same issue, and learning about the details could help me solve it.

    Re: Drive Icon Change

    Shawn,

    In the meantime I performed update install on Vista. Did not help.

    Then I followed your suggestion about changing the drive letter and restoring it back. After restoring it back to E: the disk icon showed up correctly for a few seconds (!), and then went back to the generic one and stayed. In other words, did not work.

    I would greatly appreciate further help.

    Best,
    Darius
