Hey there,

All of a sudden the usual orange icon of my WD external drive on the desktop has changed to an icon that looks like two translucent pierces of paper with folded corners.

Ive attached a screen shot.

Drive is functioning as normal but i have no idea why this has happened or what it means.

any help would be appreciated



Running OSX 10.7.3 on a Mac Book Pro
