Last night my mac was running a little slow so I decided to reboot it. When I did something changed all my external harddrive icons from the Apple OSX default to some ridiculous looking icon with some sort of speedometer on the side. I was extremely angry that something changed my icons without any acknowledgement from me not to mention it not only changed for the WD 2TB MyBook I just bought but for all my external mybook drives. I contacted WD customer support and received this answer.
Thank you for contacting Western Digital Customer Service and Support. My name is [Deleted].
So from their support standpoint it is an apple issue. I am 99% sure this is a WD issue. WD has changed the default system icon, Apple has not. I do not want to have to reinstall OSX because WD has done something to my machine I think that is rubbish.
Also I know how to change the icons through the get info option. This will not remove the icon. WD has actually made it the default icon for the system. Does anyone know how to change the default system back without reinstalling the whole OS?
