    Where does Windows store the drive icon files? I changed my drive G: from an external USB drive to an internal HDD but the icon still shows the removable drive icon.

    Hello Steve,

    The hard drive icon is:

    C:\Windows\System32\imageres.dll,-35

    I'm in awe of how you know that! solved my problem. I had copied the files from a USB drive to my new internal hard drive complete with autorun.inf and the USB icon file. Once I deleted those the hard drive now shows the right icon.

    Hi.

    Here are some other ideas, if you get tired of the dull Microsoft icons provided in the default .dll -

    Exact sizing of the new icon is rather important.
