    Default Get Original Drive Icon back in windows 8

    Hi, you all

    Before coming here, i have gooled for several days and with no luck. i found many ways to change the icons of folders but did not find a way to get the drive icon back to original.

    For some reason one external drive "lost" it's icon and you can see a placeholder only in windows 8.

    many thanks in advance for any help.

    Hi,

    You might try rebuilding the icon cache. C:\Users\username\AppData\Local. Delete IconCache.db. Reboot. This will cause the icon cache to be rebuilt.
