When I try to change my Elements 2TB external hard drive “Name” thru right click on drive or going to drive properties, it only happens in Disk Management (in Computer Management) and still I see LOCAL DISK in My Computer (or This PC in Windows 8.1).
It only happens to one of my Elements 2TB and the others are OK. When I take that specific drive to another computer (XP or Linux), it shows the right drive name in My Computer.
This problem is reported in Internet only few times then I wonder if anyone know what causes it.
Thank you very much.
PS. I did not try Formtting the whole drive solution because it is full and it takes 24 hours to sync back data from secondary backup to this one.
I rebooted Windows 8 in Safe Mode and it shows right name in My Computer (or This PC in Windows 8.1)!!
Then whatever causing, is in my computer or OS.
Also I tried this drive in another Windows 8.1 machine and still same problem. If Windows 8.1 is causing it then why my other Elements 2TB is good with it about changing name???
