Windows can only handle 15 icon overlay identifiers the rest get ignored. If file collision, file locking, and file syncing indicators are not displaying, here is a short step by step guide.
By following the next 5 steps you will solve this problem.

 On Windows Vista, Windows 7, 8 or 10


1. Check the registry of your overlay icons that Windows Explorer can load. Press the Windows key + R and enter regedit.

2. Search for the following registry key with this path



Edit: Only overlays in the first 15 positions will display. By deleting other overlays you can make room for your icons. Be sure you don't need the overlays you deleted.

3. To give priority to the vBoxxCloud overlays you have to rename them by right-clicking on the keys and selecting rename. Then add 3 times a space at the beginning of the name to place them at the top of the list, example:  "   nameofthekey"
