All I want to do is assign a custom icon to a Mounted Volume folder/drive. Here is what I've tried so far...

1) I have a secondary SSD with 3 volumes (Documents, Pictures, Music). I used "Mount into an empty NTFS folder" to mounted each one into each of the following, respectively:


Once that was done, I clicked on Properties and tried using the "Customize" tab to change the icon, but the change is not saved, and always reverts to a default drive icon.

2) I was able to change the "Desktop" icon by editing the hidden "desktop.ini" file. I tried using the same method with the Mounted Volumes and this also did not work.

NOTE: After trying each method above, I cleared the icon cache and restarted just in case. The mounted volumes still have the same icon.
