Check this out.... anyone know why this might be.

For the record....the problem here is that my Time Machine Drive and Macintosh HD are the same icon.

I have tried tossing the Time Machine .plist file which solves the problem temporarily and I've tried a archive reinstall.

Well, the first thing you can try, is click on the icon of your Mac HD, press command-I, then click the icon in the top left (see attachment, it will have a blue color around the icon when its selected) and press command-x, see if it will put the regular HD icon back on. If this effect is undesirable, just undo it with command-z.

If that fails, you can just replace your HD icon with one of your choice by downloading one off interfacelift.com or another site like that and then copying the new icon, and pasting it on that icon from the first paragraph.

Im really bad at explaining things but will work.

Note you have to right click (control click) on the bundle and select Show Package Contents to view the files.

Select the right icon from the list for your machine. I have not done this yet, but I don't have the two icons same on my machine.
