Like it says on the title. The only thing I can add to that, this is happening on internal HDD that is other than my OS drive.
I customized icons but after reboot, they keep reverting back to default. For years this was not an issue and all of a sudden it is...

== > Were the folder icons which have customized icons moved or copied? If yes, and if you are running Windows 10 Anniversary Update version 1607 then this could be due to the ongoing bug in Windows 10 Anniversary Update version 1607 that is known in current builds where copies or moves of folders over different partitions causes the copied folders to lose their attributes (such as "+r" or "+s"), which are needed for customized icons for folders to work. You could refer below article.

It's not Anniversary Update

MY UPDATE

Unchecking the "Always show the icons never thumbnails" seems like keeping the folder icons that I assigned just fine... At least for now...
