    Default Icon for HDD changed itself

    Hi, I am running Win98SE with a 120GB HDD in 3 partitions.

    In Windows explorer drive E: has "lost" its icon - blank white page with a windows logo has replaced the little pic of a hard drive? Drives C and D still have the "proper" icon.

    Things still seem to be running OK - touch wood - but I'm concerned this may be a symptom of something else? Anyone have ideas on:
    a) how to restore the correct icon to drive E:
    b) if I should be concerned (and if so what I should do).

    Many Thanks

    Check the root directory on the E: and make sure there is not an 'autorun.inf' file sitting there. If so delete it. These files are meant for CD-ROM's to make them autorun when you put it in your CD-ROM drive.

    Thanks - that did the trick.

    I had an autorun.inf file there after copying a CD to my HD temporailiy - forgot to erase that file.

    Cheers, Aaron
