Offline File Overlay Icon

Hi I am using Windows 7.

I have enabled a folder to be available offline and the top level folder has a nice green icon overlaying, however the sub folders don't have this icon.
Is there any way I can have this icon appear on the sub folders?

Many Thanks

Hi Lewis1991
Is this just for cosmetic reasons?
If the root folder is off-line or on-line their sub-folders will be in the same state.
The bottom pane in explorer will say the status of the folder.

it's so I can reassure the end user that the files are available offline in one glance without having to click on each one.
The file is actually a redirected my documents folder that goes to the server. so the user doesn't see any logo at all because he will just click my documents.

I don't think it's possible to change the icons, I have a redirected drive.
The root folder has the icon and syncs when it’s online. for all other subfolders all i need do is look at the bottom pane on the file explorer (no clicking involved) and the status says: always available.
i'll have a play and see if there is a way to change the folder automatically based on status but i think you might have to rely on people just readign the pottom pane

Sorry I can't find a way of changing the Icon to a dynamic icon, maybe somebody with a scripting back ground can probably sort something for you.
I have included a screen grab of what i mean when i say bottom pane, i really don't see the need for an icon change of any sorts, if one file is always available they all are, the assurance is all there.

I too couldn't get the icon working as we wanted so set offline sync  to each individual file instead as the one top level folder.
