I use Synctoy as a way to backup my portable drive (I simply back up the entire drive so I don't have to reinstall each program as well as any data I have on the drive). So yesterday I decided to test out my backup. I made a backup (using echo mode) then proceded to format the drive and lastly copy and pasting all of the files and folders from the backed up folder to my drive.
Everything worked perfectly except the folder icons for portable apps, documents, music, videos, and pictures did not show up. Not the Icons for the PA menu, but the icons on the folders when viewing the drive through Windows explorer. The desktop.ini files were backed up as well and recopied. I even double checked the paths in the desktop.ini files and they were all correct and pointing to the correct folder.
So, are some properties of .ini files or folders changed when they are backed up/copied or possibly when the folders were reinstalled onto the drive? Is there anyway I can make sure this doesn't happen in the future (I really like my icons :P)
