Have you seen any folder on CD/DVD with desktop.ini (excluding simplest back-ups)? I remember only some malware abusing desktop.ini in PC or Autorun.inf on CD/DVD/pendrive.

1. Users playing with desktop.ini are mostly aware of possible problems. For example, I use either some system icon or icon copied to the folder like favicon.ico for website. For many folders desktop.ini looks like that:

Code: Select all

[.ShellClassInfo]
IconFile=favicon.ico
IconIndex=0
IconResource=favicon.ico
IconFile is for older systems (up to Windows XP), IconResource works in newer systems (starting from Windows Vista). Desktop.ini settings are described here: https://hwiegman.home.xs4all.nl/desktopini.html
3. Blank icon is also informative, f.e. when Microsoft changed system resources in newer Windows versions.

I will add it as IconsOnNetReadOnly=1 (default 0).

No, but all folders have the read only attribute, so Windows has to look in all of them to check whether there is a desktop.ini or not. Folders are just special files, so the drive has to seek to each of them and read it just to check for that file.

I can not see that IconsOnNetReadOnly=1 works in neither 32bit nor 64bit TC 10.52rc1

Does that mean that it does work in 64bit TC for you - or that you have only tested in 32bit TC?

Strange, it works for me in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Maybe it depends on the Windows version? Or on other options? See also my reply in the bugs forum:
