Changes the /Users folder icon when it is on a separate partition
View change-users-icon.sh
#!/bin/bash
#An icon file needs to exist in /usr/local/imaging
# Copy the users.icns file to the root of the the Users folder.
# Since it is a volume, if you name the file .VolumeIcon.icns, it will change the icon from the default hard drisk
# This is mostly to help the end users so they feel like it is a folder and not a hard drive
# The icon should also have a small badge to let the tech staff know that it is not a normal folder and that the workflow was successful
cp /usr/local/imaging/users.icns /Users/.VolumeIcon.icns
