Drive icon missing for partitions on hard drive.


New Member

I just started having an issue on a clean install of Windows 7 SP1 build 7601.

The icons for the W & Z partitions is suddenly showing as a broken link.

I have tried right clicking on each partition > properties > customize > restore default folder picture and there is no change for either to update the icon.

Deleting the icon cache in explorer & rebooting didn't correct the problem.

I then killed the process and deleted the cache via command prompt, and when I restarted explorer I was back in business.

Thanks for the help Joe


Try clearing the icon cache first Rebuild The Icon Cache In Windows 7 or Vista see if that works.
