The Best Hard Drive Icons for Mac OS X


I’m always on the lookout for spiffy new Mac icons. Here are some of what I feel are the best looking hard drive icon replacements I’ve found for Mac OS X. Installing icons on the Mac is easy; I use CandyBar (now free) available from Panic.

In some cases these icons also come with Windows versions, as noted below. Here are four of my most recent finds.

These icons look great in Mountain Lion. Maybe you’ll enjoy them too?

      Honestly, I did it for ad purposes – tablet apps like Flipboard block all ads and only show content, so my advertising sponsors get zero benefit.

Tell me what you think!
