  1. Devices and Drives icons showed in "This PC"


    Hello,


    Opening "This PC" on my PC I see that under the title "Devices and Drives 4" the icons have disappeared and replaced by a blank page icon without name. I know that there are 4 items but I do not know which they are.


    Could you please help me find the name of these 4 items ? And how to fix this issue ?


    Thanks and regards,


    Morgan

    :)

  3. Strange USB-Drive Icons

    Hi guys!
    I just registered only to post my solving of this problem (I know it's been a while since the last reply...).
    These are the steps I took to fix this problem on my PC:

    • Removed all the Removable Devices from my PC;
    • Deleted the folder "797289b8-812a-4d9e-bda5-91567fd47bc6" from "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\DeviceMetadataCache\dmrccache\en-us";
    • Rebuilt the Icon Database of Windows using:
      1. taskkill /F /IM explorer.exe
      2. cd /d %userprofile%\AppData\Local
      3. attrib –h IconCache.db
      4. del IconCache.db
      5. start explorer.exe
    • Used the "Clean Unplugged Device Data" option from the Tools menu on Driver Booster;
    • Restarted my PC.

    After this, all icon and info in my PC were corrected!

    I hope I helped you guys.

    CYA.
