Default External HardDrive Icon Gone

I installed Acronis True Image... When I tried it I didnt need it anymore. And then when I uninstalled it, somehow my icon for my
External HardDrive Icon was gone after awhile. I think that Acronis True Image had screwed up my drivers or something. I tried to use System restore and I couldnt use it because the date had gone by and I was stuck. So Could some people give me some help or suggestions on this matter please!! Thank You!

Try to unplug the USB if it is connected by USB and plug it back in with the power on the unit on and windows should redectet it.

I was able to fix it with a program called: Iphile-Icon File Changer... It restored the Icon so it wasnt a hardware issue.
thanks to all that helped
