    Hello,

    When I plug in my time machine drive, it all works OK, but the icon on the desktop is the usual drive icon and not the time machine icon.
    How can I get the Time Machine icon back?

    If I plug in a USB drive for a TM backup... I see the standard USB icon too. However, when TM is actually running, then I see the TM icon. Try forcing it to run and see if it appears.

    Well, that's odd, the Time machine icon is suddenly back!, have not seen it for months and now here it is!
    No idea why!
