Changing a drive or folder icon on your Mac is easy-to-do and only takes a couple steps.
1. Icon, Get Info
Click on the icon you want to use and type "Command-i," or right-click the icon and select "Get Info" from the menu.
2. Icon, Copy
In the info window that opens, click on the icon in the top left corner and the icon will highlight. Type "Command-c" to copy the icon.
3. Drive, Get Info
Click on the drive that you want to change the icon. Type "Command-i," or right-click and select "Get Info" from the menu.
4. Drive, Paste the Icon
In the info window that opens, click on the icon in the top left corner and the icon will highlight.
Type "Command-v" to paste the icon.
And you're all set. If the icon will not change on the desktop but changed in the info window,
simply eject / reconnect the drive, or restart your Mac to fix that glitch.
