    In older versions of OS X I could change the icon of my hard drive by opening the get info dialog, highlighting the picture in the preview field and pasting a new image from the clipboard. I can't seem to do this now. Is this one of the helpful features that went away with the OS X 10.10 finder? Is there still some way to do this?

    I Figured It Out

    I figured out how to do it:

    1. Get info for the drive.

    2. Click on the icon at the top left of the info dialog, not the one in the preview field. The icon will be highlighted.

    3. Paste the picture you want from the clipboard.

    It might also be possible to drag an image and drop it on the highlighted icon.

    Has it always worked using preview? I've generally just used the method you describe for all specific icons on all versions.

    LiteIcon is a solid little app for it too though.
