    Can anyone provide me with the:

    • Folder icon
    • Trash Empty/Full icon
    • Removable Drive icon
    I replaced my icons with holiday ones and now I can't seem to find those. Please help!

    If you replaced them with the Get Info pasting method, just Get Info on the file and press backspace :)

    Nope... It was through Candybar, but for some reason, there isn't a backup for it...

    Does anybody have an idea where I might find these, then? I've searched everywhere on the internet and all I can find is how to change from the default. I only need 4 icons... Please? :eek:

    those icons are in the coretypes bundle in the system folder. the originals have to be there you just have to know where they are.

    open a finder window and press "command-shift-G" and paste this folder directory in "/System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources". the normal folder icon is called GenericFolderIcon.icns and the trash icons are called FullTrashIcon.icns and TrashIcon.icns

    That didn't work either; for the trash, I ended up with:

    And the folder icon itself was changed. I hate Candybar.

    Can anyone give me the icon file (all 3) where it doesn't have this as it's Get Info icon:

    open the .icns in preview, click the main image so the smaller image in the sidebar is not highlighted and copy it. paste it into the get info window.

    That didn't work either. Does anybody have a downloadable icon for the empty/full trash, folder and removable drive icons? Like on InterfaceLIFT?

    You could uninstall CB, make a new account, and copy the items from there maybe.

    Also, the Trash problem might be fixed by selecting the small icon and pressing delete.

    That didn't work. I think CB changed the icon globally and since it didn't save a default set, they're lost... :(

    I think you face a dicison here: to reinstall OSX or not.
    For if you do you destroy the rot,
    but a hassle it will be.
    But if you don't you'll learn to ignore
    the icons you set with glee.
    The problem will be still there,
    oh woe to thee.

    lol. There's no way I'm reinstalling. I have so much crap on here it's not even funny. I've e-mailed the people who make Candybar and am waiting on a response. I hope they can help me...

    Did you do exactly what I quoted? because thats what he got from the same company (Panic) to restore icons that have been overwritten.

    Besides its not Candybar thats at fault. This has always happened to people that have Shapeshifter installed with themes that have iContainer icons sets bundled with whatever theme. Then if the user applied an iContainer with Candybar it clashes with what Shapeshifter has applied. It's a known problem.

    Yes, I did exactly what you told me to do. I don't have Shapeshifter or whatever installed. I only installed the trial version to change a few icons for Christmas. Then when I went to change them back, it said that I hadn't changed them in the first place. :-/

    I honestly think your best bet is to back up your files and reinstall OS X

    This is what it all looked like for christmas. I've been able to get all but those few back... Doesn't anyone know how to make any of the icons into a downloadable format?
