    I'm planning on making myself some icons (in particular, a volume icon with the windows flag and one with the leopard X, to differentiate between them on my desktop) and with a bit of googling, found that *most* of the system icons were in System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle although one particular icon that wasn't there was the hard disk icon that is on the desktop.
    Does anybody know where this icon would be? (And any other common system ones that are not in CoreTypes.bundle)

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    the icon for the internal hard disk icon (as well as the generic one for external and removable) are located here:

    /System/Library/Extensions/IOStorageFamily.kext/Contents/Resources/

    /Rupert

    What about the icon for a networked Time Machine drive? Mine is currently just using the generic external one and I want to use the original Time Machine Drive icon.

    Thanks

    Right click on the kext file, hit "Show package contents" and they're in the Resources folder.
