I have a number of Passport Ultras and in Windows Explorer they show, for example, Local Disk (G:). The problem is, I can rename Local Disk (G:) to something else, but it won’t stay set to the new name. Since I have several Passport Ultras, I would like to be able to see which is which in Windows Explorer and Local Disk (F:) and Local Disk (G:) and so forth, isn’t very helpful. Moreover, I’m not sure I can count on remebering drive letters since I suspect Windows might change Drive letters (if I remove the Passports and put them back) to whatever letter is available . I think a descriptive label might help with this, but I can’t get the name to stay set.
I have tried the following
Rename by right clicking the drive in Windows Explorer - changes, but doesn’t stay
Right Click the drive, go to properties and change the label there, doesn’t stay
3. Go to Drive Manager and Rename the drive there. Keeps the name (that is, shows in Drive Manager correctly), but doesn’t show in Windows Explorer.
4. Install Smartware - The name set in Windows Drive Manager shows correctly, but does not change Windows Explorer
Does anyone know how to set the External Drive Label for the Passport Ultra so it shows in Windows Explorer
