This isn’t strictly a OwnCloud-issue as it’s a Windows-function that OwnCloud use backend.
Overlay Icons staying indicating status on Files & Folders.
OwnClouds icon get pushed off by other apps in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers and as such the Indicators for folder-status disappears
Steps to reproduce
- Update / Install any other app that wants to use ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers such as OneDrive, Drop-box etc. (OneDrive has gone over to it’s own Status field now tho).
Operating system: Win10
Has anyone found an actual solution for this? You can fix it manually, but as soon as an update is done the icon’s go away due to priorities in the registry changing, some vendors have added blankspaces to make sure they get put first.
My thoughts: A startup-script that removes the Registry-keys and add them back in with the correct order, putting OwnCloud as top. But this isn’t a very clean fix.
Has anyone had any luck finding a permanent solution for this?
