WD World Edition 2tb - can I rename the Public and Download folders?


I am trying to rename those folders. I have two different Wd world 2 and I am trying to keep the folder names as simple as possible for me. Is there a way to rename those folders? thanks

Better don’t do it.

Read last chapter of this article - http://hacksomethingtonight.blogspot.com/2010/01/wd-mybook-hacks-remove-default-shares.html

what could be the consequences if I do? thanks

I am really not an Linux expert (just advanced user) and I not work for WD, so i really don’t know what can go wrong. Just judging by that article it is possible that those shares might re-apear sometime later.
