Thank you very much for getting back on this.
However, I am sorry to say, regretfully that is not the solution. It changes the label how it is seen by Windows. I have done that using Explorer drive properties, so the name shows up as My Book 4TB (for instance).
The name used in the above screenshot (Western Digital My Book 1230) probably is defined in the firmware (as “USB Friendly Name”) and I am afraid that can not be changed by the user.
BTW - I am aware of the Smartware ‘solution’, however, version 1.6 does not exist anymore and the latest version of Smartware does not have kind ‘settings’ anymore.
Feel WD should provide a tool allowing users to change the USB Friendly Name, if you have multiple My Books, you don’t see the differences.
