Change ICONS used for specific Drives

Open regedit by typing regedit into Start->Run

then navigate to


Now create a key(KEY not VALUE!!) called DriveIcons under Explorer...
Now within DriveIcons, create another key with the drive letter you want to change

(e.g.,HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Window s\CurrentVersion\Explorer\DriveIcons\K)...

Create another key within the drive letter key called DefaultIcon...
Now set the default String value equal to the icon you want to use.
If you have a file that has more than one icon in it, such as a DLL file, use the standard
C:\full_path\icon_file.dll,n ) where n is the number of the icon within the file icon_file.dll...
