I ran Diskwarrior on my system. I have OS9.1. After rebuilding the directory my hard drive icon turned into a folder icon!
How can I get my original hard drive icon back???

try holding down the option and the apple key at startup to rebuild your destop file.

Hi GeekBoy,

Try highlighting (click once) the hard disk icon (now a folder). Then, under the File menu, choose Get Info. In the window that opens, click once (to select) the icon in the upper left corner. Next, choose "Clear" from the Edit menu. Close the Get Info window and see it that restored the hard disk icon to normal.

If the two aforementioned suggestions fail, rebuild the HD again; also, use something to verify your System file...
Better yet, do it manually if you know how.
