  • How do I change a Partition Name ?

    I have two internal NTFS drives partitioned into drives which have names such as :-

    (C) , ( D) , .... etc.

    (( N.B. In the above sentence I wanted to include the ':' symbol after the drive letter inside the parentheses but , when I then selected "preview post" this ':' symbol was transformed into a "smilie" !!!! ))

    That is except for drive L which has , somehow , been given a the name "L" - i.e no parentheses like the others .

    When I attempt to access this drive in Windows Explorer it is not visible .

    It , however , does appear in Disk Management as drive "L" - without quotes.

    I have tried to change this to "(L)" - no quotes - like the others with the ':' inside the parentheses but have failed to do so.

    How do I resolve this problem so that this drive will become visible like the others in Windows Explorer?

    Appears to me you're wishing to change the drive letter which is different than changing the partition name.

    In Disk Management, right click and select Change Drive Letters and Paths.

    There I suggest you do a Remove followed by an Add where you pick the L drive letter.

      To stop a smilie appearing, put a space between the : and the ) eg : )
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.
      1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
      2 2 1 1 2

        You can also use the [noparse][/noparse] tags.

        So - (C

        would become - (C:)

        by typing in - [noparse](C:)[/noparse]

            Jeremy, 19 keystrokes compared to 1. I know what method I would use.

            Thenoo, glad you have your problem sorted. Thanks for posting back and letting us know.

                So what helped? Learning how to display (C vs. (C:) vs. (C: )

                  Rick, that may have be too subtle for lesser beings who don't have access to an Edit button to see the hidden code on other members posts.
                  1 1 was a racehorse.
                  2 2 was 1 2.

                    My point to y'all (note the Texan here) was past my post #2, all others were about bloody (note the English here) colons and parentheses. I'm just wondering what the OP found useful in this 80%+ off topic thread.
