What is the difference in the light blue and dark blue music icons used in Windows 7 music folders? Please refer to picture above.

Any insight you may have in this subject would be appreciated.

Thanks

Typically the semitransparent icon means one of two things: that the file has been Cut (and will be moved to a new location when you click Paste) or that the file is hidden (/system).

To check the first simply select any file and press CTRL+C to copy. If the file icon returns to normal it had been cut ( but is no longer)

To check the latter Right click the icon and go to Properties. There will be check boxes with "Read Only" and "Hidden". If Hidden is checked, Uncheck it an the icon will return to normal. If Hidden is checked and greyed out it means the file is marked as system. That would be a bit worrying as mp3s shouldn't be system files.
