Recently purchased a 2tb seagate external drive all works fine,a few days later the Seagate "swirl" icon had been replaced by a regular windows hard drive icon,doesnt affect anything just curious to know why its been replaced with a regular windows icon?
It sounds like the file for the Seagate logo has been deleted. Did you perhaps format the drive or inadvertently delete that file? If it's the latter then it should be in your Recycle Bin with a .ico extension.
With the Seagate connected, look in your Recycle Bin. There are two files that change the drive icon - the one containing the image that has a .ico extension and one called autorun.inf. If you find them then restore them.
Cheers never even thought to look for a seagate forum,like one of the posters said he registered the product and deleted the seagate folder containing the "autorun.inf" and ".ico" and im thinking ive done the same thing without even thinking about it,secret squirrel suggested earlier i had done that
