Custom Hard Drive Icons

Every OWC drive ships with a custom drive icon to help differentiate it from your other Firewire and USB devices. Unfortunately, if you reformat your drive, the icon goes along with it, and you're stuck with the generic orange FireWire or USB icon for the drive.

If that's happened to you (or you just want some nifty icons for your Mac), this is the place to get all the custom icons for OWC and NewerTech drive solutions, as well as some original Time Machine icons.
